Comments about Panasonic Lumix G VARIO 7-14mm F4.0 ASPH. Lens:
This lens is super sharp, the colors are beautiful, and it is an especially useful zoom range for wide angles. The quality of the photographs it produces is truly first class, rivaling the German glass from my film days. It is not a heavy lens for the zoom capability it possesses. I use the optional lever from Panasonic for zooming, which does make it even easier to use. This lens has been trouble-free for me and the only negative is the inability to use filters as is.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

from Oakland, California
Have had this lens for about a year, still love it, have always used ultra-wides as my standard lens as it is how I view life, and this lens has become my standard. Pros of course are the very wide to super wide angle of view, sharpness and at f/4.0 throughout the whole zoom range, relatively quick for what it is, a zoom, not a prime, ultra-wide angle lens. Also like the built-in hood, very smart. Cons would be that it is large though small for what it is, could be faster like f/2.8 but then it would probably be even more expensive, do wish the lens shade hood were removable and that you could screw filters in but this would have made it more expensive and even larger. It could also have had better weather sealing but ditto, more expensive and maybe larger and heavier. Use it with my equally marvelous Panasonic GX7 which is a great camera, everything in black, very pro looking. So far my dream combo! I'm thrilled today to have read that Panasonic is continuing their partnership with Leitz and hopefully Leica lenses. My last camera was a Panasonic LX5 with the 24mm f/2.0 Leica lens that is the sharpest optic I've ever had - great combination. Good work Panasonic and Leica!

I bought one of these n 2009 for my G1 and use it constantly. An ultrawide lens like this on a DSLR is a rarity, and not to be missed. Truly a fantastic product.
