    I really like these shots. Great DoF and very sharp. Lovely colors as well.

    Are there two versions of the 45mm f/1.8? I saw two different entries at one camera shop.

    Very interesting. I have not been able to find any reference to a black version of this lens anywhere.

    There is no black version, not even at the link provided above.
    Listen to my new album "The Drones" free on BandCamp. Visit my Flickr images, website, or blog. Cheers!

    The lens is out for delivery so I'll get it today, or tomorrow if I miss UPS (needs sig). I have to say that I was a bit suspicious as there was no description of the lens. I even googled the OM part number before ordering but came up empty. However I was ordering another lens from B&H so I added it in. I'll let you know what it is...for some reason it's $50 less that the other one that has the description and is clearly silver. B&H do offer grey market products but they are clearly marked.

    You might want to re-check your order to make sure it is the M.Zuiko 45mm and not something else.

    Yes I have. This is from my emailed order ...

    Item Qty Item Description
    RBO4518 1 M. Zuiko Digital ED 45mm f/1.8 Lens

    and these are the p/n's of the 2 lenses
    Silver B&H # OL4518 Mfr # V311030SU000
    Ordered B&H # RBO4518 Mfr # V311030SU00B

    Could be refurbished even though not described as such, if so then I'll see how it performs and make a decision on whether to keep it.

    .. I'll update..

    I saw that too and ordered one. I wonder what it means? Paint It Black Lyrics - YouTube

    It is indeed a .... refurb!

    Still, a good deal at the price. As long as it's a good one I'll keep it.

    I've never seen a company changing the color of a lens simply because it's refurbished. This is very peculiar and intriguing.

    Ah...now I get it. Well, as long as the lens is performing as it should, you got yourself a good deal.
