    Which is better? Has anyone else shot with both wide lenses on a micro 4/3 cam?

    I'm thinking about the Panasonic for my digital PEN (EP2) because of the size, but I was also thinking the Olympus glass would be better quality.

    Found one comparison of both on micro 4/3:

    It looks like the Panasonic lens is better - sharper at wide open and less aberration:

    the thing about using the 4/3rds lenses on the Pens is that the AF is really sluggish, the lenses are huge on the Pen's, and you also have to buy an adapter.

    The Panasonic 7-14 is an amazing lens, and I can think of no compelling reason it get the oly lens over the Panasonic unless you have a regular 4/3rds camera.
