    Grabbed a trim ring and lens to make sure I didn't ship the lens off without its ring, and mismatched them... hmmm... I kinda LIKE it. Really makes it look like an older camera/lens. My old Nikkors often had silver noses.

    Looks nice!

    My wife also describes me as retro-looking and kinda sexy ... always wondered about the "kinda" part.

    I think my wife just leaves it at the "retro looking"... not sure I ever made the sexy list. :smile:

    I like the styling on the Olympus cameras and actually preferred the "look" of my E-M5 to my current E-M1. One of these days I will add an original Olympus Pen film camera to my collection as I think they were simply a thing of beauty (as many old cameras are).

    Never ask a question unless you're sure you want to hear the answer. :)

    My silver O45 didn't come with one as the original owner lost it. I actually ordered a black DR-40 after trying it in the shop, might post a picture once it arrives.
