    E-500 Wide Angle lense ?
    I would like to purchase a good wide angle lense that will fit my E-500. Something similar to the C-7070 Wide Zoom ? Any recommendations are greatly appreciated !

    The Olympus 11-22 is a great lens.

    if you've got the cash the 7-14 is fantastic, i've never had so much fun with lens that goes so wide but controls the distortion so well - it costs a mortgage though and is big, so not for all i realise.

    I needed new strobes so I compromised on the 11-22 and am really happy with it. The problem I have with the 8-14 is that it's a slow lens, and when I'm shooting wedding candids, I like shooting available light, using the E-1 and it's whisper quiet shutter, most people are unaware that I'm even shooting.

    it comes with a wide angle. the 14-45mm the 14 is equivalent to a 28 on film. if your really pressd you can take the 7-whatever. the things expensive its like 1500. i picked up the 8mm fiheye and its wonderful lens.
