I was at the local cell phone shop looking at N80's (trying to find a nice tight slider, 3 and 6 keys that don't feel stiff) and I noticed that there were 2 lenses on the N80! Everything was the same, same firmware:

V 3.0614.0.3
11-04-2006
RM-92
Nokia N80 (12)

Both said made in CHINA, not "made by nokia". Other than the color, the only differences were the lenses. One said 4.7mm 1:3.5 and the other 3.7mm 1:2.8 I'm just curious as to the differences between the two lenses. Is one better than the other? Will there be a difference between the pictures? I took a pic of each but they both look about the same. 3.7mm should be a wider angle lens, and with a 2.8 compared to the 3.5, the 2.8 should be a "faster" lens meaning more light getting to the sensor, which might make a difference.

Can anyone shed some light on this or want to chime in with a theory?!

Thanks!

Hmm very strange. No difference in lens were announced. Could be a different production batch or just an error in the production process?
