No easy solution to your problem (silver)...

The example of the 12-35 shows what money gets you...

The one thing that is painful is not that the 12-35 beats the 17mm in corner performance but that it also beats the highly regarded 25mm in corner performance.

However, what bugs me is that these silver lenses clash with my black OM-D.

The silver lenses also clash with the silver E-M5 because it's not the same shade of silver. This varies between lenses as well. But my silver 75-300 really clashes with the silver E-M5. When I got the 45mm lens I went for the black version to avoid another clash.
