Go GI Joe Klamar. We don't need to see the same portraits imitated by others.
Marty4650: You just can't please everyone.
If Olympus had made this a cheap lens... made from plastic, with a maximum aperture of f/2.8, then everyone would be complaining saying "I would gladly pay more for a much better lens."
But instead they decided to build a high quality lens, so now they will complain that "it costs too much."
You simply cannot buy high quality optics at bargain basement prices.No one has them. Not Canon, not Nikon, nor Pentax or Sony.
Incidentally, Leica will be happy to sell you a 75mm f/2.0 lens for $3800, and it still won't autofocus.
@Kodachrome200 what are you doing here dude?
Well, i'm expecting 3/4 of the Olympus Corporation board committing the harakiri, soon.
nice choice of real waterproof all weather camera. I simply love my Olympus E3.
