Just throwing it out there that you see these names of former large optics houses and speciality lenses manufacturers for companies such as Olympus thrown around by lens manufacturers, but honestly does it really mean that much or stand for that much of a difference these days as compared to third party lens manufacturers or even kit lenses, or is it merely all just marketing?
