The front element is set back so far in the 35 a hood is pretty much not necessary.

Yes, the pinch-type caps (and hoods) are standard and included with all of the DSLR four-thirds Zuikos.

Nothing less than the 27, max out the memory and opt for a big SSD, you will never regret.

...

Still on the fence about it to be honest. The thought of figuring it all out from both the hardware and software side has my head spinning.

Hope I'm not too late -- Greg, hold off on the iMac, first look at a good viewing screen and then find a video card to drive it. Sony has been showing a 4K display screen, a tad on the small size at 84 inches, but should be sufficient for some detailed pixel-peeping. And it is going for a reasonable $25K. Well, you said it was bonus time ;-)

Kula I like where you're going with this... I say we power that with a pair of Intel Xeon E5-2690 2.90 GHz 8 core processors, 32GB RAM, quad Radeon HD cards with 3GB each, pair of 240GB SSDs, four 3 terabyte drives in RAID configuration, maybe some water cooling?, and while we're at it a Ceton quad cablecard tuner so you can watch/record tv too...

Dang....all it is missing is a chip like the one from the movie "sneakers" that would let you hack into The Federal Reserve System, air traffic control, the national grid, etc, etc.

Shucks, a miniMAC can do the same things when I'm dreaming, anyway mine can.

Merry Christmas everyone, from Texas where the snow will be deep Christmas day!
