Olympus Officially Made the Worst Lens In the World
or maybe just taking it too seriously and its suppose to be sarcastic.
Its Gizmodo, you probably have better luck asking a rock on your lawn for a review, hey that gives me a great website idea askarock.com... :
Does anyone think that a "real" review would come up with a totally different conclusion? would it be any better if they said this lens is the most highhly corrected and sharpest lens on the planet.
I think the point of the article is why anyone would review this in the first place. There is a good reason Olympus doesn't advertise the body cap lens with its other lenses.
Exactly! This is what the author said:
"It's a body cap that gives you the ability to shoot photos whilst also protecting your micro four thirds image sensor from dust. Given that reality, it's pretty hilarious that DXO Labs bothered to benchmark it at all."
I think the title was just meant to grab an internet surfer's attention...
I think the title of this thread is just meant to grab attention.
I think it should read, "It's Official, Olympus Created the Best Body Cap Ever," and it should have comparison shots of this cap with caps from Cannon, Nikon, Sony, Panasonic, etc.
It is a crappy lens and it is hilarious that DXO would test it.
Yeah, I think they even note that in the second paragraph. It was a bit of a lark for Olympus and they probably made some money off of it, so they're good with it.
Well, of all of the worst lenses in the world, this has got to be among the best. The more people dis this lens, the more committed I am to using it. If you can make a good photograph in daylight with the existing 14 or 17mm lenses, you can make a good photograph with this "crappy lens". And there's something satisfying about working with gear that's so widely dissed by pixel peepers...
for what it is, the lens/cap is perfect.
Ha! Indeed. I bet Panasonic's caps would be the worst because they're so bulky and yet they don't offer a larger aperture, focal range or better IQ than any of the other caps.
Damn, I rhought you'd have got that up an running by now!
Not connecting ...
You could make a fortune, quick.
I should do it, just put the site online and when someone asks something, I could just type random words
Dang, now I really want one!!!
