Lens challenge to Oly. Tri Elmar like street lens
10 months ago

Ok Oly... I challenge your engineers to make a Tri Elmar like street lens. f5.6 or perhaps f8 fixed aperture (but not both) and a ring that selects three focal lengths of 28, 35 and 50mm equivalent in clicks. Not a zoom lens but a selectable focal length lens. Keep it small and plastic construction but nice aspherical coated glass for crisp images. A bit of distortion and vignette is ok and easily fixed in photoshop. No electronic contacts needed to keep cost down and put the money into the glass. Cost? $300. Doable? I think so. Any takers?
