Having shot for 40 years I have a LOT of experience using manual lenses including shooting auto racing. The issue isn't operating the MF lens, but the fact it has a colour cast when the digital camera (I've had yellw, and green), and it's not worth the time to correct the colour cast after!

Is it a fact? All manual lenses have color cast and all native lenses have none, did I understand that correctly?

What I can tell (and it does not take 40 years of experience) is that 20mm pancake and kit 14-42 Zuiko have different color renditions. So which one of them has cast?

Same story with manual lenses, different color renditions, sure, they do have it, which can be an advantage as it gives different looks. Some have warmer rendering (intentionally), which you can call yellow cast, some radioactive lenses might have yellowed, these can be reversed under UV lamp.

I have not seen a single lens yet with a "green" cast (and I have more than 100 lenses). No-one finds green skin attractive, so no manufacturer would produce a lens with greenish rendering, that's not typical at all. I suspect yours was faulty.

There are plenty of MF lenses with very neutral colors, so this seems like a very bizzare complaint.

agreed- neither my konica 40 nor my tamron 90 or canon 135 produce images with a cast.  my canon 50mm (fd  ssc) did.  some do, not all.
