    Default A singular or multiple lens ???

    Hi guys,

    Though I have seen this among "hated things" or such before.......

    Would someone put forth "in big bold letters" with some tallented quote maybe....

    (1). The correct term for a singular lens.
    (2). The correct term for more than one lens.


    Then something to point out a shutter closes off and a shuttle transports.


    Thanks guys

    Should that be "singular or plural"? Not multiple.

    Singular: lense or lens
    Plural: lenses

    I prefer multiple prime lenses to a singular zoom lens.

    You can say "I want 2 units of D2X", or

    "I want 2 boxes of D2X", or

    "I want 2 cartons of D2X".

    Hi, apart form first saying, "I want a lot of money ".

    I would say,"because I want to buy 2 D2X's".

    What do you call 2 or more D2Hs? D2Hses?

    And how about 2 or more D2H? D2Hs??
