    By the way, the difference between 11mm and 14mm on 4/3 bodies is MUCH greater than one will think, significant difference in the FOV unlike say, comparing 50mm to 54mm. Many who compare with 35mm say that the 11mm on 4/3 is more like 20mm on 35mm.

    more expensive = more pampering later

    Hi guys,

    I've got my 11-22mm over the weekend (my wife paid for it... hehehe... )and is very pleased with it. Great lens, I hope to have a chance to use it extensively soon. As for the 50mm... its gonna be the next lens that I'll be getting (hope soon.. ), manage to try on it at CP and its very impressive. It is such a sharp lens.

    Very happy...

    Congrats! A tip for you, try taking closeups with the lens from 11mm to max 22mm. You will be amazed at how close this superwide lens can focus and the kind of interesting angles and perspectives you can get by doing that.
