I personally can't stand the look of silver lenses on black bodies, and I've seen the same comment from others. Why the heck won't Sony offer a black version of the 50 1.8? Their more recent lenses are available in black. (The 35/1.8, the upcoming 20/2.8, the new zooms.)

I'll just keep using one of my legacy 50s in the meantime, but it sure would be nice to have a short tele in native NEX mount that doesn't stand out like a sore thumb on a black NEX body.

Would it change your mind if you knew than many shoot black Leica M body with a silver lens?

A choice would be nice, but black and silver combination is not bad, especially when the lens is actually metal and not gimmicky silver coating on plastic like many Olympus lenses.
