“So what,” you’re thinking, “I already know that Olympus Zuiko Digital lenses are awesome!

From the Manufacturer
The ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 14-35mm f/2.0 SWD, which covers a zoom range equivalent to 28mm to 70mm on a 35mm camera lens is the world's first standard zoom lens to feature a large f/2.0 aperture. Boasting industry-leading imaging performance, this lens is a worthy addition to the Olympus Super High Grade (SHG) series of lenses. Together with the ED 7-14mm f/4.0, ED 35-100mm f/2.0 and ED 90-250mm f/2.8 lenses, this lens completes Olympus' series of professional zoom lenses with fixed F-values
The flagship of the ZUIKO DIGITAL series, this lens was developed to meet the requirements of the most demanding professionals. It includes reliable splash- and dust-proofing, Olympus' exclusive SWD-driven ultra-fast AF system, a mechanically interlocked manual focusing mechanism and a large, petal-shaped hood with a polarization filter control window.
With its unique f/2.0 aperture providing bright viewing with a sharp subject and a soft blurring of the background, this lens epitomizes the versatility, power and creative freedom made possible by the Four Thirds System and is ideal for almost any application - from landscapes and portraits to indoor shooting and photojournalism.
One reason why the Olympus 14-35mm is popular is because of its Fast / accurate auto-focus

I BOUGHT THIS LENS FOR SHOOTING WITH PHOTO LIGHTS THE F 2.O WAS JUST WHAT I NEEDED. I HAVE ALSO USED IT FOR MY CITY PARK PROJECT . WHEN WORKING ON THIS PROJECT IN THE LATE FALL AND IN TO WINTER THE SLOWER LENS COULD NOT HANDEL THE LESS INTENSE LIGHT. I HAVE BEEN AN OLYMPUS USER FROM THE TIME OF OM-1 DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR YOU CAN NOT GET A BETTER SYSTEM.
This is my second SHG lens, the other being the 35-100. After some months using the 35-100, and knowing that it has taken my photography to another level, the 14-35 was a must buy. I have only had the lens a week, but have been astounded by its quality. SHG lenses and the E5 are a match made in heaven - they remove the veil of technology and let you focus on the photography
The lens, whilst not small,is not oversized. It's easy to carry and does not make the camera too bulky. I use the lens principally for taking street-portrait shots for a local paper. It focusses quickly and you can trust the image to be sharp. The wide aperture makes it brilliant for low-light non-flash conditions. It also gives a wide enough angle to use for landscapes. If you were able to buy only one high-quality lens, this would be it.
Olympus allowed me to borrow this lens on a recent photographic workshop in Spain. All I can say is WOW! Terrific for night and low light shooting, ultra fast focusing, wonderful bokeh. Depends on how you like to shoot, but this could be the ultimate â€œwalking aroundâ€ lens. I own the Olympus 12-60mm f2.8 and love it, but if I had to do things over, Iâ€™d buy this lens â€“ itâ€™s unbeatable!
