    Awesome shots above everyone!

    Nothing so dramatic here. Just a few from the nearby park where I usually find my herons and egrets. These were done with the 7-14 on my G3.

    Louis,
    Thanks for the kind comment, but I'm not sure it is entirely deserved. The first picture in particular could take some more adjustments both for tone and color. May be that an Olympus body would have produced better results. The scene was soaked in a soft yellow light, but this turned out in a bad yellow cast with the Panasonic which isn't easy to correct. I have to work more on it.

    New to the 7-14 and eager to give it a try, I visited a new part of Amsterdam with floating houses (IJburg).

    Hi there Ron,

    lovely landscapes and I particularly like the colours and tones in that gallery/roofed/pavillion (?) bridge shot.
    Isn't it great to have both 100-300 and 7-14 ? Such sweet lenses !


    Kind regards.

    More nice autumn captures, Ron, although I think the second one might work better as b&w due to the largely flat sky.

    You are definitely on a roll at the moment with these landscape shots. You sold me on getting 25/1.4 with the ones in that thread. Fortunately, I already own the 7-14!

    Lovely work.

    Thank you so much, Louis. I'm trying to get in as much hiking and landscape work as possible before our Michigan winter sets in.

    I saw somewhere that you were considering selling the 7-14 for the Oly 12. I'm sure the 12 is lovely, but I'll never get rid of my 7-14.

    Re: Panasonic 7-14

    The 7-14 is truly an awesome lens. I just got a 24x30 print of this image of Sand Dune Arch in a metallic print from Bay Photo. Taken with a GH2 using the 7-14mm at 8mm f11. It definitely holds up to that size with remarkable detail. I also picked up a copy of the 12mm and am going to evaluate it in comparison to the 7-14mm. I am looking at the 12mm to be part of a light weight prime kit of the 12mm, 25mm and 45mm for business trips. This image is only possible with the 7-14mm as you need to get to 8mm to get the wall on the right to be this prominent.

    Re: Panasonic 7-14

    Cliff, a "wow" shot with fantastic colours and shapes. I've always been a tad disappointed with the 7-14 at the wide end but it may be because I fail to stop down far enough. I'll be really interested to hear of your thoughts on the 12mm. I've been toying with the idea of selling my 7-14 and buying the 11mm so (like you) I can have a lightweight 12, 25, 45 kit.

    Mind you with the prospect of a fast, constant 12-35 on the horizon from panasonic I may just hold off on that for a while...

    It's been a while, haven't been in Glesga since it was gentrified - the second one, is that the former Royal Bank in Buchanan St?

    Re: Panasonic 7-14

    I've been working on a book about the tombs of New Orleans for the last couple of years, an on and off project for me. I was in New Orleans for Mardi Gras last week and took the opportunity to visit more of the tombs in the graveyards there. I first rand into a shot of this tomb sculpture in a fine art photography gallery in the French Quarter. The owner gave me general directions to the tomb but warned me that the tomb was no longer accessible to the public, that it is now locked.

    I made my way to the cemetery and found the tomb and as the owner of the gallery said, the tomb was locked. As it turns out the tomb has two blue stained glass windows. One of them happened to be open allowing me to use the GH2 with the 7-14mm. By using the articulated LCD I was able to frame the shot below. Most of the shots in the gallery were head on shots of the sculpture.. Understand that this is a very compact space and no other lens I had with me would have done it justice. Panasonic GH2 w 7-14mm lens - f/4.5 ISO 160 1/80s

    And no... I ain't afraid of no ghost..

    Nice Jim, very evocative. Despite the constraints you were faced with (locked doors) the angle has worked out very nicely, arguably better than a head on shot.

    Some really nice and sharp photos here! That Lumix 7-14mm is awesome and I like to have one, but here in Croatia it's so much expensive, 10.000 kn or 1.750$! Just TO much! Cry. But yes, as Knorp said, 100-300 and 7-14, a "musthave" lenses in bag!

    Re: Panasonic 7-14

    Since this was a shot with the 7-14 I thought I would post it here as well as in the fun with thread....

    I took this shot yesterday at sundown along a highway in Texas. I was using the GH2 and the 7-14mm, ISO 200 1/60s f/4.5. A friend and I had photographed this old diner earlier in the day but decided to come back at sundown to see how the sun would paint it and the sky. Waiting for the light.. something every photographer should learn to do. This is probably the best shot I have to date from the GH2.

    Recipe for maximum fun with the 7-14mm:

    Find a pretty girl with no photo experience other than with her iPhone. Show her that the LCD can be turned towards her. Watch

    All photos with GH1 and Pana 7-14, 2 @ 7mm and 1 @ 14mm

    Some pictures from Stepney Green, a London Underground Station in the East End of London built in 1902. A simple cut-and-cover construction but pretty much unaltered since its construction. Now used by the District and the Hammersmith and City line trains.

    GH-2 and Panasonic Lumix 7-14, iso1600

    The stairs contain an original Edwardian sign which has survived the standardisation of signage which took place in the 1920s.

    Re: Panasonic 7-14

    I'm a long-term Nikon user who acquired an OMD a few months ago. My D700 hasn't done much since. I've had the Nikon 14-24 2.8 since it was first released so the Panasonic 7-14 is an appealing equivalent given the general approval and many of the images posted. Right now it's hard to justify (OK: afford) this lens given that I have the Nikkor - which I can't bear to sell even though I don't use it a lot.

    A couple of comments. Many of the shots posted here and elsewhere show conspicuous keystoning - which is obviously unavoidable in some circumstances. However where the vertical angles aren't extreme, I'm really surprised that people aren't correcting this extremely unsightly effect; it's often accompanied by the shot being out of level too, which is glaringly obvious with subjects that include architecture. I'd have thought that any IQ loss caused by PP correction of these effects would be hugely compensated.

    The other characteristic that nobody except me seems to mind - and it applies to both of the lenses above, and no doubt all others at these extremely short focal lengths, is the "volume anamorphosis" distortion. This is most apparent where there are people toward the edge of the shot who appear disturbingly broadened. Obviously these aren't portrait focal lengths but the effect can be seen even with inanimate subjects, variably. The stretching effect is particularly noticeable where there are circular or spherical elements at the periphery of the shot .

    As far as I'm aware the only RAW processor that corrects this is DxO, and I'm not sure whether the 7-14 is amongst their mapped lenses, or even if this correction can be applied to any lens of appropriate FL. They offer two different correction strategies.

    Given that I have four RAW processors already I find it hard to justify (again!) buying this software however it's definitely worth downloading an evaluation copy to see if this facility makes a worthwhile difference.
