Item Description
Bonjour,

I acquired this used MIJ 77/1.8 about six months ago and love it ... but, I hate its silver color. Yes, I am weird.

I thought that I would get used to the silver 77/1.8 on my black K-5, but "nope" ... it just has not happened for me. I guess that I am too much a traditionalist or "Henry Ford" kind of guy ... "You can have any color you like so long as it's black!"

My trade proposition is simple: My silver MIJ 77/1.8 low serial number for your black 77/1.8 MIJ or AIV ... easy, eh?!

Or otherwise an outright sale is possible. Thanks for looking and have a good day ... Salut, J

I recommend buying a silver K-5 or stick it to a yellow or black K-01 because the dial and pop up flash of those K-01 is in silver, it will complement the silver finish of your lens. Regards with the sale

Since the new DA Ltd's are made in silver as well as black, it is pretty possible that the coming camera/s will be available in silver too!

silver + silver = awesomeness!

I know and I am eagerly waiting for that. I am still stopping myself from buying a K-5 in silver. Specially now that I have the three FA limiteds in silver

It's funny. I had the FA77/1.8 in black and I switched it to the silver version, because the black finish is prone to rub marks. The silver finish holds up better over time.

I agree with you guys. I am now using K200D Silver and K30 White(temporary) and try to wait K3 Silver version come out. I really want to see it on the market asap, so excited, but the price will be really high. Don't you guys think Ricoh will have Black and Silver version on Oct 8th? I just think about the new HD lenses in both black and silver, it may be their strategy to release both black and silver camera to attract the customer, and make it different from competitors. So Silver is no longer rare anymore, just different choice?
