    A braaaaand neeeewww Corvette!!!

    I wish.

    A black Olympus 45 1.8!!! (It's the last lens I'm ordering for a while...already have the 9-18, and a black 75 on the way).

    Best of all...I'm an English teacher in South Korea, and for some unknown reason some foreign teachers qualify for a government "welfare and wellness" subsidy worth about $250 once a year...I can put that towards my lens!!!

    This is me right now: :biggrin:

    I want those black lenses!

    I miss my Oly 45mm f/1.8, it surely is a great lens and looks super stealth in black.

    Enjoy your new lenses :thumbup: and post up some pics after you get them.

    Wow, those are cheap!!! In Korea, through Olympus they're about $350 in either colour. Going through a grey market seller (I think) the silver is about $300 and the black is around $327.

    Yeah, I have a 75 coming too...I wasn't sure which one to buy, so I decided to buy both...oops. But I think what I'm going to use them for is the 45 will be my prime for travelling (it's so light and compact) and the 75 will be the prime for bumming around Korea/Canada.

    Thanks, I can't wait!!! The friend bringing the 75 won't be back in Korea until about the 24th (and I'm leaving on the 27th, so I might not even unpack it haha), but the 45 should be here next week, I hope!

    Yeah, the black's just too stealthy...I've been waiting for those to be released and I must say I'm very happy with them (except for the stupid silver ring on the 45).

    Thanks, I hope so! Both have awesome reviews...I've been meaning to get more into primes lately...this full system change from Canon is just the nudge I needed! :D

    And the next one

    Great news and I am sure they will look stunning in black (I have the silver versions but wish they were black, only a colour though and performance is the critical factor and that is stunning from both).

    You only need the black 12mm special edition now to complete the holy trinity!

    Yeah, the colour thing is purely a matter of preference...but with a black OM-D body and my quest for stealth, I just had to go with all-black! :D (I can't wait to get this camera together with my all-black Canon AE-1 Program!).

    Haha, yeah, I want to get one more lens, but it won't be the 12mm...I rarely use that focal length, plus I have it covered (albeit slower) with my 9-18.

    I'm thinking PL 25 1.4..I'd love to have a blazing fast lens...haven't had a 1.4 in about 3 years, and even then it was the Canon 50 1.4, which I was never crazy about.

    The PL25 is a stunning lens and even though larger & heavier than the 20mm I used to have, there is a difference in both IQ and focus speed that I can see.

    My primary "Street" kit is the OMD+25mm

    I think you would enjoy the Corvette more than a lens.

    Hahaha...who am I kidding, I don't even believe myself! I'm already scoping out the 25 1.4 and a pancake of some sort...I just came back from selling my 5D Mark II...it'd be a shame if that money didn't get recycled right back into photography, right? ;)

    For about a week...then I'd get banned from driving haha. I have enough troubles keeping my foot off the accelerator on my crappy cars (Kia in Korea, Ford Escort wagon in Canada)...photography is a much safer/cheaper pursuit! :D

    I dunno what a 'vette goes for in Korea but Gary is right - you'd enjoy the Corvette more than the lens; I sold C5 to get my wife a (then new) T-Bird :frown:.

    The good news is that she still has the 'bird, the better news is that she's not into photography so I don't have to trade my lenses in to get her something new :biggrin:.

    My 45mm should be leaving B&H today, but my 75mm won't be shipped until...oh, sometime early in 2015 :biggrin:.

    It's good that you've completed your purchases...but may I be the first to point out that you still haven't gotten a fisheye? :biggrin:

    Regards (and congratulations!),
