Olympus 45mm/1.8 silver or black ?

I own a brand new GM1 and since I'm switching from NEX, I buy a minimalist system with several lenses that people seem to agree that they are OK wrt price. I have the 20mm and next buys are Samyang/Rokinon 7.5mm fisheye and Olympus 45mm/1.8.

Maybe you'll laugh at me but, since I'm buying new lenses, I would prefer that it looks nice on the GM1, even if it doesn't matter to many people (*). And I have to choose between black and silver. About the Samyang silver, it does not look the same as the GM1 silver color :


So I choosed it black.

But what about the Olympus ?

In the shop next to my house, they only have it in black and thus, I cannot check the colors by myself.

Would you consider that GM1 and 45mm are of the same silver tone ?

Sorry not to ask for sharpness or AF speed

(*) actually, I really dislike the GM1 design (I don't like vintage) and don't want it to get even worse with strange colores lenses on it.
