Quote:Thanks for the confirmation.Thanks Sylvain. Here is another review involving an exchange. It is by Ctein at The Online Photographer.
I read about that on Jordan Steele's blog Admiring Light (pretty good one, btw).
Basically, he went through 3 samples to get a good one.
Shame to read that again. His review had severely put me off at the time and still does.
The 12-40 f/2.8 might change things a little, although it's not exactly a low profile lens.
I just don't understand why Olympus can't get its quality control for this lens working. It is such a beautiful lens and design, with excellent image quality, if you get a good copy. There is no excuse for the lack of quality control, especially when you consder how expensive it is.
