      Nah - silver is lovely, esp on a black body.

        Plus as it is a metal body silver reflects the heat.

          The silver 45mm on my black epl5 is classic, enduring and damn tasty!

            I loved the silver 75mm so much I bought a silver body too...

              If it helps, give me the silver one, that frees you up to buy the black one.

                  But the black version focuses faster initially as it heats up and then much slower when the lubricants run out of the lens.
                  It's the image that's important, not the tools used to make it.

                          Plenty of interest but I just can't afford it at the moment .

                            Having just bought a Samyang 7.5 fisheye, huge fun, I don't think I dare go for this much as I would want to. However I will grovel and see if I can cash in some more brownie points.

                              I've been using my 75 a lot this past week and I must say what a fantastic lens it is. I've ordered and have returned a Nocticron (due to damage to the box in shipping), but I'm beginning to think I might stick with the Oly 45/75 combo. As nice as the Nocticron is, it's notably bigger and heavier than the 75 and the IQ is no better. The longer focal length doesn't stop it being a great portrait lens and TBH, the Oly 45 isn't a million miles behind the Nocticron either.

                              Net, net - I think the 75 is one of those signature lenses for the system that everyone needs to experience. For many, it's a lens that you won't want to sell.
