Photo ID Numbers

Since the site "upgrade" I have noticed that all the newly uploaded photos have odd ID numbers, however before the upgrade the photo ID numbers were consecutive.

Out of curiosity, is there a reason for the photos to only be assigned odd numbers?

All of your other choices are a bit limited/specialised to be used as an all purpose lens.
