Aren't these just the stock 9mm diode lenses? That seems like the obvious elephant in the room to me (a good elephant).
Received my lenses today, thanks!
In terms of what we call these lenses, I've said it before....
....and I'll say it again (now that they're in front of me). These are absolutely, positively, without any question whatsoever, G9 lenses
I know there was some discussion of them looking different on a spec sheet somewhere, etc etc etc. Well, I have them both in front of me, and they are identical. Period. No distinction whatsoever. If anyone has any doubt at this stage, just grab one of these lenses and a G9, and measure their dimensions with a micrometer. There is zero difference, and if you mixed the two up, you'd never be able to tell them apart again (because they're the same lens, from the same source). These are the "G9" / stock 9mm diode lenses, mounted in an M9x0.5 frame.
Just logic your way through it. Lots of Chinese sellers are selling just the 9mm diodes.... what do you think they're doing with all those lenses? Tossing them? I'm not complaining - I think it's great! But it's time to call a spade a spade. These are G9 lenses.
cheech226, the first time I moved out from my parents house was back in 1970 and I moved to New Orleans with my girlfriend who was going to LSUNO at the time. I was working as a shoe salesman of all things and lived in the city just off of Lee's Circle. Back then New Orleans was called the Crescent City and I never ever heard the term " The Big Easy". Who and when did this nickname come from? I lived not to far from Audubon Park on (what was the name of that street that the trolley runs on) and had an apartment in an old house there. Man, that was a long time ago. Anyway, let me know if you wouldn't mind.
