The currently unavailable 12mm Black edition.
According to one trusted source the 17mm, the 45mm and the 75mm Olympus price lens will come in Black. He has no info yet if the Black version will be sold as limited edition (And Extra $$$) like the 12mm Black edition. Curious, that edition has been discontinued and is no more available neither at Amazon nor at BHphoto. I think Oly has learned the lesson and they will give us all primes in Black without making us pay an extra $$$ for it.
And US readers (unlike we poor Europeans) can enjoy some great price drops on theses prime lenses along some brand new PEN/OMD price drop. They pay $39 only for the Olympus 45mm f/1.8 (Click here), $449 for the new 17mm f/1.8 lens (Click here) and %699 for the 12mm lens (Click here). That’s the price we hopefully see on the new Black edition!
