    For those of you who purchased silver Olympus lenses and are now looking longingly of the black versions that are soon to be available, it's possible your decisions are going to be even more difficult.

    Olympus recently announced three new colors of its 15mm "body cap lens" which heretofore has only been available in black: silver, red and white.

    001_s. 200 /> 003_s. 200 /> 005_s. 200 />

    Unfortunately it appears that at least for now these new flavors are going to be made available only in Japan, but here's hoping that this means that a bright red version of the Olympus 75-300 is a possibility in the near future. That thing will look SWEET on my E-P5.

    You know, I just might buy all three and then get rid of whatever lenses I currently have.

    Seems reasonable to me. Having all four colors should cover you pretty well in just about any situation.

    Thanks for the confidence. I'm glad I recently got a second body.

    You may be in for a long wait, but if they do make such a lens, I hope it comes in camo.

    Why not camo glitter?

    I think these would look great with one of the "dress up" lens cap and grip combos that Olympus sells.

    well, if they ever make these for the more popular lenses, these will probably cost significantly more than the black/silver line and be available in very limited numbers... unless the m43 system becomes super popular for some reason.

    Not going to lie, I really like that red one. If they made an OM-D in red I would totally buy it.

    I'd have purchased the red body cap instead of black - it would look awesome on my black E-P3. :biggrin:
