Are you aware....

That there is a huge price discrepancy between the black and the silver. I can't exactly remember but the black was close to double the price of the silver, which was already not to cheap. There is no difference between the lenses that the black came with the hood.

If you know this and still want a black one they pop up from time to time on eBay but you will need to be patient, watchful and prepared to outbid everyone.

I have the silver on the black EM1 - it looks dorky but I've learnt to stop worrying about it. All my primes are silver. I'm sure that if I swapped them all for black the next camera I buy will be made in a silver version only. I plan to keep my lenses longer than I keep my bodies so it is what it is
