The differences is apertures seems to be within the range of "error" often seen 
in measured values vs. rated values in lens tests, so it is quite possible they 
are the same lens. Of course, a close inspection of each would reveal much 

For those who have the Zuiko 35-105: does this lens bear the white "date code" 
lettering on the lens mount area like other Zuikos? I know the presence or 
absence of these letters proves nothing, but it would be interesting to know...
