    Here is another interesting review of the lens:

    http://olafphoto.wordpress.com/2013/02/05/just-get-it-fujinon-xf-14mm-f2-8/

    I have to agree with this (although admittedly I've only tried a few wide angles, mostly Nikon):

    "I came from the pro-level Nikon and Canon gear and after one day of shooting, this lens has impressed me. In fact, after my initial assessment this is the best wide-angle lens I have ever shot with.

    (To make it even more interesting, the very same day I borrowed a Nikon D800 with the AF-S 14-24mm 2.8 zoom lens and used it along with my Fuji X-Pro1 and XF 14mm F2.8. You will find the whole story of my “Camera Fever” episode in the next post. For now all I can say that the Nikon D800 and its super-heavy lens is back in a store)."

    Thanks for the pics Dave. Looks like the 14 is pretty sharp all around!
