You provide nothing with your statement. Basically you know nothing and have nothing good to add to the world. I know that Olympus would not be able to make the filter size the same for all lenses, unless they had a very large size, as in unnecessarily large for some lenses front element. It does not take an adequately intelligent person to make some inferences from my statements. But if a person would use a tiny bit of logic, they could still see the validity of my post, in that it would be nice for some lens uniformity. Some lens "lines" that people could read and understand what level lens they are buying.

And I do not really care about the metal bodies, actually I want plastic bodies, or at least the front end of the lens to be plastic so we could use simple bayonet mount lens hoods. I do not care about the manual focus rings either. But I put that in the thread to hopefully drum up some more responses.

Lets promote calm rational arguments.
