    Xenoplan 17/1.7 on G1



    Does not cover the whole frame. It is one sharp lens and is usable for "appropriate" situations. I hacked off the front plastic with the filter thread and name. So, it is even smaller and lighter weight than the original.

    Waiting for that mythical Olympus tobacco can camera.

    Thanks, Keith.

    No, this is a discontinued version. Someone from Ukraine had it for a long time in their web shop. I tried to buy it before the G1 came out. I was told that it isn't available anymore. The same surfaced on ebay for $30 (buy it now) from the same folks.. In spite of the $20/- shipping, it took them 6 weeks to locate it and ship it to me. So, it was a very patient purchase.
