That's a lot of elements for a 50ish lens...

Inukim: "The owner has sent the lens and and camera to a Leica service center..." AND AND?

I think Inukim is pointing out a typo in the sentence.

Marty4650: PS3 or PS4...... I never knew PhotoShop 3 or PhotoShop 4 had handheld controllers!

I learn something new every day!

I'm pretty sure Marty4650 was joking...

I'm pretty sure someone has corrected him already, but the thorium dioxide is NOT in the coating, but doped in the glass itself.

rrccad: I assume you used the EF-M to EF adapter for the 35mm macro and the M6. how was the focus performance? I found the focus performance "okay" with the 60mm macro and the M3 - failing often at near macro distances - is the m6 better?

Apologies. I can't read.

Is it true that the D7500 looses its AI/AIS indexing?

cshyde: OK other than intimate massage devices just what is their area of strength? I have been waiting for a replacement for the LX100 but it looks like there may never be one.

Panasonic makes a crap ton of products including batteries. Batteries that power cell phones to batteries in Tesla electric vehicles.

I don't know what to think about this adapter. Some sample images would be nice with multiple lenses, not just the Tilt shift.

You should have asked them why they didn't come out with a EF-S wide angle prime...

On article Throwback Thursday: Our first cameras (392 comments in total)

In high school photography class, I used my fathers Olympus OM-1 with the 50/1.4 silvernose. I used to mess around and put my eye right up to the lens. I only later found out (couple years ago) that the front element was doped with radioactive thorium...

In reply to:

KonstantinosK: Interesting. I didn't know about folded optics. Is there the same solution in my TZ-5? And is this used in today's travel zooms?

Not sure about the TZ-5, but most water proof cameras that don't have extending zoom lenses use this design such as Olympus' Tough series, Fujifilms' XP series, Panasonic's TS series and Sony's TX series cameras (not water proof).
