Olympus 12mm f/2.0 "special edition" owners - how do you feel about the new version?
3 months ago

Hello campers,

According to 43 Rumours, Olympus will announce a new black version of the M. Zuiko 12mm f/2.0 lens that will sell at the same price as the usual silver one.

I wonder how owners of the black "Special Edition" feel about this, given that they paid a premium of several hundred dollars to own a black version of the lens (albeit with a protective filter and a hood thrown in the box), only to find it re-launched at a cheaper price.

Personally, I would be a bit grumpy if I were in that boat.
