Home Depot and Loews, and many hardware stores sell small cans of black paint.

Actually a good idea. It's a $90 lens anyway. That gaudy silver must have been leveled at certain markets that mistake electronics for jewelry.

Please drop me a line the next time you see a SEL50F18 for $90, will 'ya?

Seriously, though - I wouldn't paint one without total disassembly, too many VOCs to cause damage.  And if you're going to go to the trouble to disassemble one, just have it anodized black and be done with it.
