Changing tools, changing views

For about the last 5 years I’ve been using a Panasonic 7-14 wide angle lens for some work. It’s a great lens for street work and getting close to things but its one drawback has been a lack of wide aperture. This has been addressed by Olympus.

8mm (2 of 4)

Whereas f/4 was the widest Olympus now offer the same angle but with an f/2.8 aperture or a prime 8mm lens with an F/1.8 lens. I selected the prime for a raft of reasons and it arrived today.

It’s wide alright..sharp too8mm (3 of 4)

It also promises to be good for close up work and offers a lovely bokeh.8mm (4 of 4)
