We obviously have very different tolerances for holding this lens. Those exposed mounting ring studs tear. My. Hand. Up.

So funny that those studs bother you - I barely feel them and I'm a real pill about things like that!

I don't have the lens on a camera body right now but I doubt that my hand even touches those studs!

My only complaint is about a couple of cheap rubber lens hoods I bought and as I had read in an Amazon review, the metal part of the hood that screws into the lens separates from the lens.  Furthermore when I unscrewed the hood the uv filter came off with it.  When I lookat the filter, which I had used on another lens I saw that it was dirty and tried to clean it with lens paper and a drop or so of lens cleaner.  I was absolutely unable to get off the dirt, so I ordered a new (Olympus) protective filter ($67?)  Guess I'll be using the included lens hood!
