Now that I am older, some things just seem to bother me more. Is it just me? Is it just me or does anyone else cringe at the use of "glass" as a substitute for "lens"? I'm sorry, but it just bugs me. What's the point of introducing this slang into the English lexicon? What, exactly, in the context of photography, differentiates the definition of "glass" from "lens"? Is it suppose to be a secret code among "advanced" photographers in the know? Why obfuscate the well-understood word, lens? I understand that language continually changes, but this is one "change" that just doesn't make sense. Is it just me or is anyone else annoyed by the use of "Panny" as a substitute for "Panasonic". Again, why obfuscate a well-known brand name? Come on, it's only a matter of typing FOUR MORE LETTERS! Ok, maybe it's an affectionate name. I'm sorry, but it just sounds childish. I know, it bothers me and, therefore, it's my problem. But if I could find a way to end the above assaults on the English language, I would. Please, feel free to comment on my rant or add your own "Is it just me?" observation.
