rain and front element

well, those are the shots without rain on the filter.

it was raining pretty hard (although not as bad as later in the day) and many images had visible artifacts. the wind was fairly calm at that point (later became 35+ m/s gusts) so the rain was falling straight down... which a lens hood should eliminate, but the store was all out of the appropriate lens hood when I went to purchase one the day before.

must be a new marketing gimmick for olympus to not bundle hoods with the lenses. being my first olympus m4/3 lens, I went searching for one in the box initially, since all my 4/3 olympus lenses came with one, and the same for my m4/3 panasonic lenses.
