    Sounds great, but "Limited Edition?" :eek: So, more expensive, but maybe also including a black hood?

    They just revised the post to correct the lens to be the 12mm not the 45.

    Well they accept my silver 45mm for trade in? :)

    Actually I kind of like my silver one contrasting with my black e-p3 body with the black leatherette skin.

    Don't see why they just don't make more black lenses. They look good on either silver or black camera bodies.

    Looks like Olympus marketing try every idea there is, to sell their product. Once all silver paint already used for making silver-OMD they left with black color for lenses. But instead just sell it like normal lens, they come with the idea to create demand by slapping limited edition label on it. This is what they do after they can't generate enough money by removing included hood from all m4/3 lenses. :rofl:

    About time they got round to doing black versions, but disappointing that this will be a limited "charge you more" edition. I'm still disappointed that I didn't get a hood or carry case for such a premium lens with a premium price tag to match.

    Wow, this has got to be the weakest announcement ever. I sure hope they've got more good stuff besides this.

    Honestly black, silver I don't care.
