I was introduced to the ZD 14-35 SWD about a year ago in Melbourne, when I met my regular photo walk buddy, David. I have tried the lens occasionally, but I have never really experienced what it would be like to really own one. The opportunity arose to purchase a mint copy from a forum a month ago, and after many hours of using this lens personally, I am pleased to present this review to you.
The ZD 14-35 SWD, being the flagship of the Zuiko Digital series is the latest addition to the Super High Grade (SHG) professional zoom lens series with fixed F-values, which comprises of the ZD 7-14mm f4, 35-100mm f2.0 and 90-250mm f2.8 lenses. [multiply the focal lengths by 2 for 35mm field of view (FOV) equivalents]
In short, the 14-35 is a great lens, and should be seriously considered for shallow depth of field (DOF), and low light work. If you like to know more, read on http://brandoneu.blogspot.com/2009/09/my-personal-review-of-zuiko-digital-ed.html
