Olympus 14-35mm f/2.0 Overview

  • 1Description

A versatile and fast zoom, the Zuiko Digital ED 14-35mm f/2.0 SWD from Olympus is designed for Four Thirds DSLR cameras, and provides a 28-70mm equivalent focal length range. The bright constant maximum aperture is well-suited to working in difficult lighting conditions, and also contributes to extensive control over depth of field. A sophisticated optical design incorporates extra-low dispersion and aspherical elements to control both chromatic and spherical aberrations in order to realize sharp and clear imagery with true color rendition. Benefitting handling, an Supersonic Wave Drive (SWD) autofocus motor delivers fast and near-silent performance while mechanically-interlocked manual focus affords enhanced control. Additionally, the lens also features a weather-sealed design to support working in inclement conditions.

Wide-angle to short telephoto zoom, this 14-35mm lens is designed for Four Thirds DSLR cameras and provides a 28-70mm equivalent focal length range.
Fast f/2 constant aperture benefits working with shallow depth of field and selection focus techniques throughout the zoom range and also supports working in low-light conditions.
Optical design incorporates one glass molded extra-low dispersion aspherical element, two extra-low dispersion elements, and one aspherical element to reduce both spherical and chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range for increased clarity, sharpness, and color fidelity.
A Supersonic Wave Drive (SWD) autofocus motor delivers quick, quiet, and precise focusing performance to suit working in a variety of shooting conditions.
Mechanically-interlocked manual focus mechanism provides direct and natural manual focus response for improved control.
A rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth bokeh quality.
Splash- and dust-resistant construction benefits working in trying environmental conditions with this lens.

    Olympus 14-35mm f/2.0 Reviews

    Zuiko Digital ED 14-35mm f/2.0 SWD Lens is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 28.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Try it on OMD EM1 I have been using this 14-35 F2 lens for 4+ years on my old E-3 with excellent results. I was about to give up on it until the OMD EM1 entered the picture. Results have been nothing short of outstanding. Inside focusing under dim lighting, fast; under E-3, struggles. Quality of photos, under E-3 excellent, under EM1 beyond outstanding. Be sure to shoot RAW/LSF -- don't use just LF, which is set by factory. Go into menus to access the LSF. I use the Oplympus software to save the RAW files as TIFF and get fantastic results. Don't give up on your old legacy lenses, they work great on EM1. BTW, the 7-14, F4 and 11-22 F2.8-3,5 work great and so does 8mm fisheye legacy lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an outstanding lens Aside from heavy and big, which I think are necessary cons due to its huge aperture, this lens is just fantastic. Since I got it, 8 month ago, it has been on my E3 body 90% of the time. It is very sharp, even at f2.0. From f2.8 to f8 the images are as sharp and clean as you can get. The defocused image (boke) is also superb. Distortion is very well controlled, only noticeable at the widest focal length on architectural or similar kind of shots. I have many Leica M and Hasselblad last generation primes (9 of them), and I can seriously say that this lens is at the same level, but remember, this is a zoom not a prime. I use it mainly for landscape and portraits. It is quite good for close up work to, but it doesn't have close enough reach to replace a good macro lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweet! This lens is what I am expecting now that I've begun to invest in the 4/3rds. It's first rate and focuses quite fast even on an E-1. It's big, and heavy, yes, but compared to the canon 24-70 f2.8 (approx same size), the front zoom extension is moderate whereas the canon extends quite a bit within the lens shade (very odd and too long). The one gripe is that it's not a 24-70. Those 4 extra mm's are crucial for shooting amongst changing and dense environments. If oly made a 24-70 at f2.8, I would have bought it instead. With that said, having to deal with a 28 makes me wish I had a bit more on the long side... like an 80 or 85. Regardless, it's worth it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hard to find fault I mainly use this lens a general purpose walk around. Yes it is a bit heavy and sometimes i wish for a bit more reach, but every time a download the shots I'm happy all over again for having bought it. The images are very sharp all the way across the image. It's a very very good performer optically. It lost a star for a combination of it's hefty size, hefty cost and limited reach. I guess it's a bit unfair when you consider it's a weatherproofed F2 zoom ! I sometimes find the AF is a bit more twitchy than other SHG lenses I own, but perhaps it's more related to the body. I use the E5 and the E1.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great piece of Glass I have been using the Zuiko 12-60 for about two years and always felt it was the best lens I would ever use but after acquiring the 35-100 ED SWD I became aware there is a higher class of digital camera glass. This pushed me to purchase the 14-35 and I have had it on my E5 since it came out of the box. While heavy, it is not so bad you want to switch lenses. Clear to the edges and works well with the improvements made with the E5. I am hooked on top glass and now need to get the 90-250 to complete my collection. I bought mine refurbished from B&H and have been extremely pleased with the purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like no other I purchased this lens as an upgrade to ZD 12-60mm. While 12-60 is really a great lens, I found that I'm not using it much at long end and it's just f2.8-4, while 14-35mm is a constant f2.0 The images it produces along with the E-5 are sublime, incredibly detailed throughout the frame and at all apertures. Low light took to new heights and although the lens is larger than a 12-60 by quite a bit, it's not too much of a problem. Autofocus is very quick in good light slowing down only in very poor conditions (f2, 1/50s, ISO1600). I would recomend turning the release priority option to ON on your camera in order to speed up focusing in low light as by default the camera is somewhat cautious making sure it's in focus for longer than it's needed. The bokeh this lens makes is fantastic as is color and contrast which are a step up from HG glass such as 12-60mm. It is relatively expensive and large, but once you've experienced this level of quality only SHG Zuiko glass can offer, you won't want anything less.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I prefer this lens over mFT 12-40 F2.8 on Olympus E-M1 body I love my mFT 12-40mm F2.8 on my E-M1 and E-M5. However, I prefer this 14-35mm F2.0 over 12-40 F2.8 for portraits, I was amazed at razor sharp emagine even shooting wide open at F2.0 at night. The 14-35 focal range is ideal for portraits - I do not miss 12mm on 12-40mm F2.8, as 12mm is too wide for portraits. If I need wider than 14mm, I use my 7-14mm instead.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from one of the best lenses I've ever used Lens is very fluid throughout the zoom. One thing I should warn buyers who are wanting to use the lens for video I have an AF100 is though the lens IS a constant, it only stays constant AT f/2.0... Now, it's not that big of a deal, if you run your aperture at for example f/3.5, it will stay constant from 16mm-35mm.. but will click if you go all the way out to 14mm. Not really much of a set back, I still would recommend the lens to all.
