Olympus 7-14mm f/4.0 overview

  • 1Description

The Zuiko Digital ED 7-14mm F4.0 2X is a wide-angle zoom lens, with a zoom range equivalent to 14mm-28mm on a 35mm film camera. By incorporating large-aperture aspherical lens and a two-sided aspherical ED lens, it effectively corrects distortion and astigmatism commonly associated with wide-angle lenses. With a minimum working distance of just 10cm, the lens allows the photographer to work extremely close to the subject.

    Olympus 7-14mm f/4.0 reviews

    7-14mm f/4.0 Zuiko ED Zoom Lens is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 21.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great super wide angle lens Although I do not use this lens often it is good for situations where an ultra wide angle is desirable. It is probably best for landscape photography; I will also use it for large family gatherings around the table where this lens can truly fit everyone in. At the wider angles there is a noticable fisheye effect under certain conditions; but that is typical for any 7 mm lens. A good lens to have, but I would purchase the 14-35 and 35-100 Zuiko zoom lenses first. Be careful with the lens; the surface does stick out quite a bit and can easily be scratched; it does NOT take any protective filters.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievably crisp I've used this lens for about a year now. I originally thought I'd only use it when I needed something super wide angle, but this lens is so much more capapble than that. The distortion is so minimal, that I've wound up using it as my primary wide lens (I also have the Zuiko 11-22). it's totally amazing at 7mm for doing tight crowd shots where it's wall to wall people and just totally useful at 14mm for that something wider than a normal 25mm lens shot. My only concern is the anxiety that the extended curve of the outer element creates--it's pretty exposed and won't accept any filters. Absolutely love it. One of my favorite lenses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Need an ultra-wide? This is the one! Great lens with incredible optics. At its widest angle, lines are still straight, with no visible distortion. Images are very sharp. Lens is oft described as heavy, but it's the price for the great quality of the images. Outside photography seems to catch a bit of a polarizing effect, with sky looking a bit bluer (actually making photos better). Lens has a rugged-built feeling, very well made. The lens cover has no securing feature, just slides out, so it can be easily lost. Since filters cannot be attached, if you want to use them, you need to find a free-mounting filter system.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super-super-wide This is the lens why I bought a Olympus DSLR. It is impressive: the quality of the optics, the sheer size and weight. The lens has almost no barrel-distortion, quite a feat. I use it mainly for architectural shots, but it is great for landscapes and cities aswell. Just take a little care when using the lens, the front element stiks out quite a bit and can be scrathed if not carefull enough. The same applies when putting the lens onto the camera. Would I recommend this to a friend ? Yes if he is a real good friend, otherwise I would like this to be my secret. Overall: a super design.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lens that makes you tremble A lens that makes you tremble - with fear or happiness - or both. It's wide, in fact Ultra Wide Angle (UWA) at 7mm and that opens a lot of opportunities but also some challenges. That goes for any UWA - you'll have to learn how to use it. This particular UWA is a winner and the recommendations I read before my purchase where right: This is a highly recommended lens by many people out there, and some even bought into the Olympus system because of this lens. Build is the best you can imagine. But keep that lens-hood on when you walk through dense forest like I do so that you don't damage the front element. Keep the price-sticker glued on to the lens will make you remember how to handle it carefully.... Image quality is worth the money, period. I've got 11-22 and that's a sharp and overall very good lens, but 7-14 is sharper and though it's wider there's less CA. It's an unbelievable masterpiece, a lens to keep for the rest of my life.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best wide angle you can get I purchased this lens to shoot inside of luxury yachts. You just cannot beat this lens for shooting in small spaces. Staterooms, and even heads (bathrooms) can be shot with no trouble at all. I've tried it with the Olympus 11-22mm (another great lens), but the 7-14mm has it beat. I marked heavy as a con, but this is a real piece of glass, and I expect it to be heavy. You're going to use it on a tripod anyway.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 7-14mm an excellent ultra wide lens I bought this lens from B&H about 6 months ago. It is a super high grade (SHG) lens, which is Olympus' highest level of construction (dust/splash proof) and image quality. The best features of this lens are its ability to control distortion and its very vivid, sharp images.It is contrasty, solid, precise, and hefty (The heft is pleasant, as it balances well on both an E-1 or an E-500). It can be hand-held easily at 1/15 shutter speed (sometimes even 1/4). I use it primarily for indoor architecture and unusual perspectives. It also gives skies a sweeping distortion that is very dramatic. Overall, a great lens that I've enjoyed owning immensely.ProsImage qualityLow distortion (for an ultra-wide)Close-focusing distance allows extreme perspectivesConsNo filter threads (however polarizer doesn't seem to be required to darken blue skies at 90 degrees to the sun) Expertise: Advanced amateur/enthusiast. Problems Encountered: The user should take care to avoid lens flare .This lens controls flare very well, but ultra wide angle photography is more prone to flare, I believe.As a newcomer to ultra wide photography, I found composition can be challenging and strong foreground elements are required.This is not the ideal lens for portraiture (people in the center of the frame are ok, unless you focus too close on their nose).The front lens is convex, so I'm always very careful to avoid bumping the lens element. Previous Equivalent Item Owned: None (14-54mm is a wide-to-short tele zoom)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning quality, minimal distortion have owned this lens since 2005, I can safely say, it has been the best purchase I have ever made. Unlike other optics (including primes like the 12mm Heliar) the difference in exposure between the centre and edge of the frame, is only 1.5 f-stops, whereas many others are around 3 f-stops. In use, it's bulk, actually is an advantage, as it balances well in the palm of your hand. Yes, you can make it flare, but not as much as other 114 degree AoV lenses.
