Shiny chrome. Matt black. Gloss black. Matt silver...
I could't agree more. Examples enough of fine looking 35mm lenses: 35mm f/2.8 Summaron and 35mm f/2 Summicron v1. Just make a lens exactly look like these, but then in black paint on brass. Is that so hard? Cosina can do it, see the Color-Skopar 50mm f/2.5 LTM.
