A must have for an micro 4/3's DSLR
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.

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.
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!
Have been waiting for a lens like this for years and now I have it, on a Black Panasonic GMC LX7 - perfect combo for me. Love 24mm lenses and am very comfortable dealing with the stretch and curving that goes with them but always wanted something wider. Can honestly say that this 7mm maximum wide angle lens is almost too wide for me, that's a good problem to have! I like shooting in rooms and always need a super wide, likewise like doing selfies with groups or just my wife in restaurants and this lens is perfect. Any cons would be that the lens is large-ish so I can't slip this whole thing into my pocket. But am getting older and can't deal with tiny point-and-shoots with their equally tiny controls and settings. Nor do I want to manhandle a DSLR any more, too heavy and big. This setup, LX7 and the 7-14mm lens, is great for me. Another con might be the lack of waterproofing - was just in Yosemite hiking and it started raining so I worried about it. But just slipped the camera inside my jacket and everything was fine. The lens does not have stabilization built in, but now that's in the LX7 body, so check that off. The large bulging front element with sculpted sunshade and without the ability to add filters or use an expensive spring loaded lens cap, are also not problems for me. I have always been a "no filter" photographer, feel that the protection is unnecessary (have never broken or scratched a lens)and more glass just adds to image degradation and the chance of more off angle glare and flare. Great lens and can't wait to shoot more with it!
This is one of the sharpest lenses that I have used. It gives wonderful reditions of all scenes. I am using it 60% of the time that I am shooting. Well worth the price.
It's the widest lens you can buy for M4/3, to the extent you need to be careful and not include your shoes while taking pictures. There is a minimal amount of distortion, considering how wide it is, taking pictures leveled, trying to avoid steep angles, will really help. It's very expensive lens, but then... I think it's worth the money. One of my favorites for sure.
The lens deserves a high rating, at least on Panasonic cameras, but on my OM-D I'm getting the same purple flare mentioned by others, even from overhead lights indoors; unfortunately, not a keeper (though should I eventually buy a Panasonic body I would buy this lens again).
I've been needing a wider angle lens than the 14-140 that lives on my GH-2. This lens isn't the cheapest, but it's well worth the price. It's extremely sharp and contrasty across zoom, f-stop and focus range; just what I need for interiors and wide nature shots. The only downside might be that with the domed front element there's no provision for filters, but after all, that's what Photoshop is for.
This is a great wide angle option for micro four thirds. It works great on my Olympus OM-D E-M5. It is on the large and heavy side for an MFT lens, but it's still very manageable and more compact than something comparable on APS or full frame. Compared to Olympus's entry in this same category (the 9-18), this is more expensive and larger but has better image quality, a built in hood, constant f/4 and a range that goes wider.
The quality and compactness of this ultra-wide angle showcase the advantages of this compact interchangeable camera system. Achieving so much in a compact lens on a compact body has improved my enjoyment of photography so much.
I am so glad I bought this lens! Perfect in every way. Sharp, fast, great angle of view. Solid construction. Great value. I have not removed his lens since it arrived. Just grabbed incredible shots of the fall colors up on Pikes Peak. All I can say is PERFECT! One minor point to note, since you can not use filters with this lens you will need to be careful not to damage or scratch the front surface. I keep the lens cap on at all times when I'm not shooting which means the cap is always in my shirt pocket ready to be put back on. Some felt it was pricey but not for a lens of this quality. I see that Panasonic has raised the suggested retail price to $1099, if you are looking for a great wide angle lens I suggest your grab this one before the price increases.
