This lens is compact, light and both contrasty and sharp. I mostly use it for landscape.
I own the Z6 and Z7 and wanted to try this lens. After using a while, I have to say this is the best wide angle lens I´ve ever shot with. It´s small, light and very well built.
I bought my Z7 after waiting awhile and although I don´t usually buy the kit lens, this is an extremely fine piece of glass. I did think about using my favorite wide angle 14-24 on my Z7, but this lens is equal and comes in for a lot less money. Images are sharp from each corner, and focus is spot on. I can´t say enough good things about this lens - and the weight really makes a difference when you are carrying it all day on a landscape adventure hike.
This lens alone makes it work switching to the Z platform. Compared to other super-wide lenses this one is very small and lightweight. Ideal for landscapes. Accepts filters. Yes, it has a fair amount of distortion at the wide end. But for most of my landscape work I disable the automatic correction. That makes it about 13mm. Yes, it is ´only´ f/4. I´ll gladly accept f/4 to keep is small and light. This lens is no larger than the 24-70 f/4 kit lens. They make an excellent pair.
I use this lens primarily as my real estate photo lens and it´s awesome!! It definitely out performs my old 12-24mm!!
The 14-30 f4 is an excellent addition to my Z 7 system. Small, light-weight and sharp, it´s exactly what I wanted to compliment the compact full frame body of the Z 7. I don´t find that one stop slower than 2.8 is a significant issue with landscapes, travel, cityscapes, or industrial photography. If I decide to get more serious about astrophotography I will probably add a fast, wide prime at some point.
This lens is the only one I used on my Z6 during a recent trip to several Utah National Parks. Had the Z24-70 in my bag but never took it out. I found the Z6/14-30 setup to be perfect for my vision of the landscape. The Z6 with this lens carries comfortably in a small messenger bag on day hikes. I love it. The images are great too.
Coming from a AF-S 16-35 f/4G ED-VR this 75% the length and 71% the weight of that lens, with the slightly wider view. I´m an architect and used the previous one extensively on job sites. I have not had a chance to the new one too much yet, but I think I will be even more pleased with it due to its portability.
I had previously used a Tamron 15-30 2.8, good but heavy. This lens is quite sharp and distortion is at a minimum, the ability to add a screw on filter is greatly appreciated. Just got back from a trip to the Blue Ridge Parkway and this lens performed admirably.
