    I never had any complaints about the lens, not that I particularly had great expectations of it, but it did seem rather prone to dust getting between the elements and needed frequent dismantling.

    I guess the size of it increases its worth. I don't mind lugging heavier lenses around and try to squeak every bit of enlargement out of my 35mm shots (so I prefer better optics).

    Good point though.

    My LX with 40mm 'pancake' attached is more compact than many a so called compact-a really nice little lens and it's still working fine after being treated to some pretty foul conditions {sand, rain etc}.
