When will people get it that the thing you screw in front of the camera is called a lens? Not a lense. Certainly not a len.

Lens is the singular, nominative case.

And the plural of that is not len's. It's not lens', even. It's also not lens. It's lenses.

Argh.

Edit note: I do realise that lense seems to be an almost generally accepted alternative for the singular. The rant was mostly caused by all the people on photography forums thinking it's len for the singular and len's, lens' or lens for the plural.

Heeee. No, not that sort of thing.

(Dunno what it is with me today. I was chatting with Ayerf earlier and think I caused her to reach for brainbleach at least three or four times.)
