"The Panasonic Lumix G Vario 7-14mm F4 is a remarkable lens - it may not be the widest angle zoom currently made (an honor held jointly by Sigma's 12-24mm for full frame and 8-16mm for APS-C), but its combination of ultra-wide view and compact size is unique. And for a lens that's so wide and so small, its image quality is very impressive indeed." DP Review.com
