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?

I'll make it. When it is ready you can have it for free. I'll even pay for the shipping. No need to even thank me. I love doing stuff for people so that is all the satisfaction, reward, compensation I need.

Thank you for the offer. I like to put up my crazy ideas to the world because 1 out of 100 are briliant or semi cool and who knows what could happen once you release them to the universe. That would be a good cam karma magnet and yes I accept your offer :-). I would insist on you patenting the lens formula and selling out to Olympus for a tidy sum to fund your travels.
