Zuiko

It started out as me taking pictures of both of my cats' favourite toys with the lens you see in this picture. But I've got news for you, when your cats catch you playing with their favourite toys, they show up. And they do pose, but the 50/2 is not the right lens for this, so I locked the tripod and put on the 35/3.5, but by then the cats were off doing other things. I could have gone back to photographing the cat toys but the 35/3.5 is not the right lens for that. So, what this is, in lieu of my recently sleeping felines is my sharpest prime lens, on a cat bed, as captured by my second sharpest prime lens. Apparently this is how I spend my Thursday afternoons.

Re: hairs

That shot makes my neuroses go through the roof! Hairs and dust... looks like a bad place to leave a lens without caps! (or with them, for that matter)

It's the 50/2...

It's fully sealed against internal infiltration by the likes of dust and hair, let alone moisture. And while I like the look of the 52mm center pinch lens cap, the front element is way more beautiful naked. I've been shooting this lens for six years now, it's been rained on, snowed on, soaked with seawater, covered in desert dust, rinsed of same under a kitchen faucet; it has nothing to fear from a bit of carpet and a couple of strands from my favorite co-mammal.
