Re: Would anyone buy D lenses over G lenses just for build quality?

generally agree.  i've bounced as many metal lenses as plastic ones and the plastic often hold up better.  metal protects but transmits force.  plastic protects less but transmits less.  i love D-lenses cause i like aperture rings (among much other things, makes them much more useful when i mount them on my OM-D) but i don't think twice about mounting quality G lenses and heading outside...dav
