After much procrastination (2 years to be exact) I finally decided to make an investment in an ultra-wide lens for my kit. I'm not much of a wide shooter preferring a 35mm focal length for street shots and other general purpose photography. However as my commercial and events photography business grows, it's tough to capture all the action in an enclosed space with my current set-up.

Enter the M.Zuiko 7-14mm f2.8 Pro lens from Olympus. A fully weather sealed chunk of class wrapped in sleek, black metal. It's heavy for the m4/3 bodies but the results are nothing short of extraordinary and worth the extra weight. It's sharp from edge to edge and maintains an aperture of f2.8 throughout the focal range - perfect for the recent Sofar Sounds gigs I've been shooting.
Here are a few quick street snaps I took immediately after receiving the lens. I'm super excited to experiment more with this crazy range. Watch this space for some ultra, ultra wide shots.
