As Iwert has explained, Dawid, that was a tease.  Here's an image of a
24/3.5 (for sale at www.ffordes.com , and no connection, it's not mine!)

<https://secure.ffordes.com/Shop/Images/used/370684.jpg> 

It is quite a bit bigger than the 24/2.0 and nearly 2x the weight - you can
get all the detailed information from the renowned eSIF at
<http://olympus.dementia.org/eSIF/om-sif.htm>, and parts diagrams etc are at

Hi Piers,

My reason for going with the f/2.0 is that I really do quite a bit of
low-light shooting. Tell me, is the f/2.0 much inferiour to, say, the 2.8 or
3.5 in terms of bright-light, stopped-down photography? I understand it has
pronounced distortion, but apart form that (and bigger physical size) am I
compromising on too much?

I am itching for the 18mm.... very much so.... Especially since there now
one for sale on this list at a reasonable price :-)

And yes, I can understand the term "Zuikoholic" looking at the addiction
these lenses seem to cause, but I am trying to keep things within
moderation, based on the sort of photography I do. And one big reason for
going this route is also the compactness, it's really not always feasible to
lug the big canon kit around. I am not a "collector"
but rather a "user" and I will happily try something out and then re- sell
it is it doesn't suit my style... so I am hoping the Zuikoholic tendencies
will be kept at bay for me.

I want compact, top-quality, reliable kit for walk-around and contemplative
photography, and a couple of lenses should cover that. I do see the merit
of, staying say within the 24mm - 90mm range, having two sets of lenses, one
low-light (and bulkier), the other ultra-small travel kit for daytime
photography, with similar portability to Leica M kit, but I do prefer a SLR
for the type of work I do in terms of close- up and precise composition.
