Anyone know anything about this? I've been starting to think about buying the Olympus 12 mm lens and was looking for a black one - but they're out of stock almost everywhere I look (in the UK). Have they ditched the 'special edition' run and that's it, no more black ones, or are they planning to bring the black one out again, perhaps at a price that's closer to the silver one? I'm trying to decide whether to snap up a second hand one, grit my teeth and go for silver, or wait!

Thanks

Liz

I think you may be right....I don't see it either. If you have the 12-40 2.8, though, I wouldn't bother (unless you want the small size). My 12 2 is good but not great, and I think the 12-40 is as good at 12mm as the 12 2 is.
