Finally, In Black


Two very desirable prime lenses in the Olympus Micro Four Thirds lineup are now available with a black finish. Both the 75mm f/1.8 and the the 17mm f/1.8 are listed on B&H for preorder.

Why is this a big deal? For those of us who have the black Olympus OM-D E-M5 body, the silver lenses appear mismatched. I know it sounds funny, but I don't shoot as much with my silver 45mm f/1.8 as I should because I don't like the way it looks on the black OM-D. So I use it when I need it, but not much more.

I'm now considering the 75mm f/1.8 with the black finish, which has garnered excellent reviews. I'll keep you posted if I get it.

Take a look at the Olympus Micro Four Thirds Gear Guide for an overview of cameras, lenses, and accessories.
