By reading the review of this Olympus M. Zuiko Digital 7mm f/1.8 makes me think of replacing my old digital lens. I wonder what the cost of this one in the market is.

You mention several times that the snap-focus mechanism is great for zone-focusing.

Did you actually try to do this?

The aperture markings on the barrel are much too close to each other to make zone-focusing practical.

Setting the hyperfocal distance is somewhat easier, but only if you chose f6.3, as this corresponds with 3 metres, which is marked on the barrel.

I replaced my lens with this Olympus M. Zuiko Digital 7mm f/1.8 and believe me Newzild that it really works best for me. Try it!

Olimpus 17mm f/1.8 definitely wins Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 in conjunction with the E-M5
