I'm afraid you all are wrong. Limited Black means that the black paint will peel off after a limited period of time, so you'll end up with a silver lens after paying more for it!

Not if it's black chrome. It's a virtual lock this lens will not be painted, and if it is painted, it would not turn silver. Lenses that are painted have a brass surface underneath. Paint does not work on chrome/metal surfaces very well.
