By Joe Farace
In the August 2005 issue of Professional Photographer, we ran a review of the Zuiko Digital ED 7-14mm f/4.0 and Zuiko Digital ED 150 mm f/2.0 lenses designed for the Olympus E-System. Click the link below to see more images taken with these lenses and to download the full review.

At 14mm, the Zuiko Digital ED 7-14mm f/4.0 has a 75 degree angle of view that shows off this rare McLaren road car and some of the surroundings in The Mathews Collection. Exposure with an Olympus E-Volt 300 at ISO 400 was one-half second at f/20 in Aperture Priority mode with the camera mounted on a Manfrotto tripod. © 2005 Joe Farace
A second shot was made at the same exposure without moving the camera but by rotating the lens' zoom ring to 7mm. This shows the possibilities when shooting interiors when your back is against the way and a "silly millimeter" of focal length can really make a difference. © 2005 Joe Farace
One of the prettiest MG TF's I ever saw is in The Mathews Collection. I shot this image directly in black and white using the Olympus E-Volt 300 and Zuiko Digital ED 7-14mm f/4.0 at 12mm. Exposure was 1/25 second at f/4 showing that the lens delivers crisp results even when wide open. © 2005 Joe Farace
Model Tia Stoneman has a retro look that works well with the Olympus E-volt 300's built-in sepia mode. She was photographed outdoors using the Zuiko Digital ED 150 mm f/2.0 with the camera set in Aperture Priority mode to control depth of field. Exposure was 1/250 second at f/9 at ISO 200. © 2005 Joe Farace
