Pictures? We don't need no stinkin' pictures. They just get in the way of GAS.

my 28-48 arrived today.

it was packed in a padded envelope...

anyway, the cosmetics are very good. i'm surprised because the ebay photo showed it as not that great. the power of pics eh?

but the glass has alot of cleaning marks/scratches on the front element which is disappointing. i will have to see if it makes a difference and i need to track down some kind of hood for it, i think.
it had a new looking uv filter on it that was covered in fingerprints. it cleaned up well though.

i sent an email to the seller expressing my disappointment and i can only imagine the reply i will get.

Original hood:

TYPE------------LENS--------PART#
55mm Screw-in 28-48mm/F4 108-244(3)

(3) = Discontinued product.

The "proper" hood will be very hard to find.

You might be able to get away with 108-230, the metal slide-on hood meant for the 35/2.8, 50/1.4-1/8 and 85/2. It might be a bit too deep for the 28mm setting, but if so, having it ground down a bit until it no longer vignettes might work.

i have that hood coming in, the one you mention 35/50, trius.

like using the canon gear, finding the accessories was the greater challenge.

the filter size for the 28-48 is 49mm, why would the hood be 55 if it's screw in?

would a hood for a 28 (49 screw in) not work also?

thanks alan.

Huh. I've never seen the lens, so it looks like the eSIF is incorrect, or perhaps there was a setup-up ring required. I've written to the keeper of the eSIF and to see what he has to say.

I suppose you could use the 28mm hood, though I wonder how much benefit there would be at the 48mm end. Granted, the hood is most needed at the wide end anyway.

28-48? I might have to look at my box of unused OM hoods again...

Of course, if someone out here has a 35-70mm f/3.6 Olympus zoom they're dying to get the correct hood for, PM me. I know I have that one.

I wrote to Hans, the the keeper of the eSIF. Here is his response:

yes its filter size is 49mm.

Both the OM System Lens Handbook and Das Lexikon de OM-Systems claim the hood is 55mm screw-in. That would mean it would have two screwthreads? Or both books could be wrong. Can't tell, have neither the lens nor its hood. I'll ask it on the OM Mailing list.

regards,

Hans

Looks like someone has the OM diseases something bad. I traded in my OM-4 for an OM-1md because I had shutter issues that was worth more than what I paid for the 4. Now with an OM-1md I picked up a Motordrive 2 to go with it.

I always suspected that OM system is not just about pictures The only problem with OMs - GAS inevitable.

joe, here is Hans' response:

Hi,

list member Bill Pierce confirmed that this lens indeed has two screw threads...

regerads, [sic]

Hans


Since you cannot see another set of threads on your sample of the lens, the mystery deepens.

with a very bright (blinding) light and a magnifying glass i can see what might be threads on the inside of the focusing barrel.
using the 49mm hood sems easier and i wonder what the real hood looks like cause it still has to cover the 28 end of business.

i will continue the search for the proper hood.

You go, Joe! Lovely. I'm about to get my butt up and get outside with an SP (APX100) and maybe an OM with a lens "to be determined". Nice sunshine out there, and I need to buy one or two more little things.

the zuiko wides are among the most expensive i have seen of the om line of lenses, so it's doubtful i'll get one.

Even the 21/3.5 is not cheap; it has a wonderful reputation. I am very fortunate to have a 21/2, purchased at employee discount price in the mid-80s; even with a healthy discount it was well over $500 in 1985 (or so) dollars.

The wider lenses (8, 16, 18, 24) are also quite pricey, though with luck a 24/2.8 can be had for reasonable money. The 28s and 35 primes are much more reasonable, especially the slower (2.8, plus the 28/3.5) and with luck you can find a good sample for very little money. The shift lenses are another story altogether.

At this point the only wide in which I would be interested is the 24. But it is only a mild interest, having the 21 & 28.

i have the vivitar 19-35 so i can go long if i want.

the zuiko 24 is of interest but only at the right price.

the zm25 is wholly satisfying and in truth probably a better camera/lens combo for the wide stuff i like.

i'm finding the oly much more comfortable with the longer lenses and the zi with the wides for sure.

I agree regarding the ZI/ZM25 combination. The Zuiko 21/2 is special, and I would find it hard to give up that combination. The OM-35/2.8 combination is similar in its meaning to me, but I admit as much for sentimental reasons, as the 35/2.8 "liberated" me from the 50. As for longs, I will stick with the 100 and, if I can resurrect it from fungus, the 300/4.5. The only other long that is of interst is the 85/2 or 100/2.

OK, now I see the two filter threads. Found another oBoy auction for this lens. It's easy to see where the 55mm thread is.

Clearly, the 49mm thread is for filters, but the 55mm thread allows a hood to be mounted independent of filters. Cool!

Truis, I like the idea of "employee discount price" I work for Creo (now Kodak) and Leaf digital backs are engineered in the building nearby. I should have asked what is Leaf Aptus 22 price after employee discount

Igor: Go for it! Ask them if they could do a special run of OM-D backs. Leaf back on an OM-4Ti. Oh yeah, baby!

BTW, if you ever get to Rochester, let me know.
