I see a Panny 7-14 in your future. Fantastic lens.
It is except for its inability to deal with flare.
Yes, that is the one thing that has me a bit scared about getting this lens. There was a rumor a while back about another version of this lens coming out which would have OIS. If it does come to p[ass I hope they do something to mitigate the flare/ghosting issue.
It's really not that bad. I wanted the starburst that you get from a smaller aperture so I shot this at f22. But most of the time I would shoot it at f4 ... and try to avoid having the sun in the frame. Actually I do that regardless of the lens, mainly because of the contrast problem.
Actually it is very bad. Its inability to resist flare means it limit its potential usage. I have never used a lens as bad as the 7-14mm when it comes to dealing with flare. When I'm not worried about flares, then the 7-14mm lens is one of the best UWA I have ever used.
