I don't really think the size is that obnoxious. I'll take the obnoxious size for an extra stop of light and ability to take ND filters either way. Honestly I'm not too happy with the image the 7-14 produces either (might have to do with the fact that I often end up shooting at f22 to keep my shutter speed below 500). -___-
