    Other stuff not in kit but still used on occasion: Another FL-300R, E-P1, Panasonic 14-45mm, flash kit (stand+umbrella, Vivitar 3700, YN560, mess of batteries, Roculux gel kit, AC power adapters, etc), tripods. Also Nikon Nikkor 28mm F2.8 (actually the 50mm F1.2 in the photo does not go in the kit).

    The wife gets the E-P1+14-45+FL300R.

    Did you take that picture with a spork, Rob? :wink:

    Nice little kit, but didn't you just buy a Panasonic 20mm pancake?

    Ha! I also have an E-P1 that belongs to work.

    Navitar 17mm F0.95 lens is basically a 25mm F0.95 with a front end WA adapter so two lenses in one! I'll take some pics for ya on the morrow.

    P20mm ... no Oly 17mm F2.8.

    Navitar website no longer shows the items ... strange. I have three Navitar lenses from way back. 50mm F0.95 (Do5095) a 25mm F0.95 (I think Do2595) and the 17mm F0.95 (I think Do1795).

    The 17mm F0.95 I was fiddling with and noticed that a front group of elements just came right off. What was left behind looked suspiciously like the 25mm F0.95 lens! I measured an MTF and compared to another lens and they are remarkably similar. I asked Joe Corsi (Navitar guy) and he did not deny they were the same lens with a wide angle adapter stuck on the front.

    All three Navitars are 1" format c-mounts. The 50mm is too fat to mount correctly to MFT so I use a 5mm extension and use it for macro work (it is very soft so not really worth the effort/price for such uses).

    Here you can see the 17 and 25 next to each other.

    And the 17 with the wA adapter removed to reveal the 25mm F0.95 base.

    Pretyy handy if you are into this sort of thing.
