    It may not be as incorrect as you think, as it is merely a variant of 'lens'.

    There used to be an Australian photo company called Hanimex (it was known in other countries too). Many was the person who called it HAMinex but I've even heard it pronounced as "ham an' eggs". I know the Poms reckon that Aussies (and Yanks) murder the English language but that one even offends my ear! OxJohn

    Not much worse than "glass", however.

    I've actually got a whole list of photo jargon which irks me:

    Burning a roll of film
    Souping a roll of film
    'bokeh'
    The Big Auction Site
    Fast Glass (as Shawn said, above)
    Lense (even though as Thomas points out it is a variant)
    'nice capture'
    Xpro

    Is Xpro like cross-processing, only more hip?

    This was a cunning plan by Kodak to force people to use Kodak film in Kodak cameras as the other manufacturers' 120 film would not fit.

    Unfortunately for Kodak, the other other film manufacturers were equally cunning and started making 620 film as well.

    The 'rit on my Minilux is a great lense.

    Just a pity that 'rits are so slow and affordable.

    They are fast focussing though, and they do well with fast film.
