This example is a stunner, both optically and cosmetically.

Re: Silver Olympus 75mm f/1.8 in excellent condition

To those wanting a black 75mm - you've got it all wrong. The silver version is so much classier. The black version could be just another plastic-cased tube from Canon, Nikon or Sigma - but the silver one is a thing of beauty and a talking point with anyone you meet. Trust me

Re: Silver Olympus 75mm f/1.8 in excellent condition

I agree Paul, silver metal looks stunning on an all black camera. It's an item of beauty as well as being optically one of the best. And I'm not just saying that, it is optically brilliant, see some of the great images created with the 75mm f1.8. It has a massive piece of glass up front which looks purposeful!
I don't use it much, not once this year, hence the sale.

Metal lens on black camera is that old 16mm movie camera look isn't it.

I quite like it.

Re: Silver Olympus 75mm f/1.8 in excellent condition

well, I have had silver version in past and didn't really like it on black em-1. if i decide to try it again, it will be black for sure this time. all my m43 gear is black and it is simple choice for me, as for everyone personal liking.

Re: Silver Olympus 75mm f/1.8 in excellent condition

Black absorbs heat more than silver, so less thermal expansion, therefore maintaining the accuracy of the optics. The air inside expands more in a hot lens and when it cools sucks in more cool moist air.

It's possible to get a black lens hot enough for the lubricant to run out of it.

To me they're tools, not fashion accessories so they could be yellow with blue trim for all it matters.

Price reduced to 420

Forgot to mention, I have the original packaging, and that's in fine order too.
