Does anyone have a picture of a black OM-D with a silver 20 1.7 II?

    Hi guys,

    I'm wondering if anyone has a picture of a black OM-D (E-M5 would be best, but E-M10 or the E-M1 would be okay too) with the new SILVER 20 1.7. (Not the old grey one).

    Here in Korea, the silver one is like 35-50 dollars cheaper than the black one. All of my lenses are black, but I really like the look of this lens, just not sure I'd like it on my black E-M5.

    Sorry no E-M5 photo, but I do have a close-up photo of the lens on a black GF2. Hope this helps!

    Haha thanks for the effort, but it doesn't. ;)  I know what the lens looks like and I actually like it more than any of the other silver lenses in the stable, and I've seen plenty of photos of it on other cameras, but seem to be having trouple finding one on a black OM-D. :)

    I can't help. I do have the black PM2 with a lot of silver on it and it looks awesome with the silver 12-32 pancake. A black OMD is really black though so it'd be ONLY the lens that is silver.

    I don't care about looks. I've the black EM5 and have silver Oly 17 and 45 f/1.8 lenses and it looks fine.

    Awesome...thanks! :) 

    Definitely prefer the black. I've always thought that the silver bodies look good with either lens. To me (and I realize it's a matter of individual taste), the black body/silver lens is unattractive. I'm going to keep going all-black. :D
