By loose part, I think I correctly assume you mean the front element. What
was available? All the elements as a package? Or nothing? If I recall, the
90mm f2 macro is also current production. Am I wrong in my assumption that
Olympus, as well as all manufacturers, have to supply parts for a certain
number of years AFTER an item is no longer produced. It should go with out
saying that parts should be available during the production run. What gives?
Any ideas?
