I personally can't stand the look of silver lenses on black bodies, and I've seen the same comment from others. Why the heck won't Sony offer a black version of the 50 1.8? Their more recent lenses are available in black. (The 35/1.8, the upcoming 20/2.8, the new zooms.)

I'll just keep using one of my legacy 50s in the meantime, but it sure would be nice to have a short tele in native NEX mount that doesn't stand out like a sore thumb on a black NEX body.

+1! I seriously would never have considered a NEX full stop. Until I saw the 6 with a black 16-50PZ and I said YOWZA!!! Ended up getting the black 5R, and very soon the 20mm f2.8 in BLACK!!! This will be my sNEXy little stealth machine.

I'm considering painting my 5R flash black too. It's plastic - it would cost all of 1c each to change them to black!!!
