    Default Does the black FUJI lens have better resale value over the silver?

    Hi all

    Planning to get the Fuji 35mm F2 lens for my silver XT1.
    Apart from aesthetics, are there any other considerations like better resale value for the black over the silver etc?
    Hope to hear your views

    Thanks!

    Bodies tend to change over time and you might end up with a different colour body in future. Lens however last for a long time.

    Silver body + silver lens = ok
    Silver body + black lens = also ok
    Black body + silver lens = ugly
    Black body + black lens = ok

    If I have a choice, I would go back and change my lens to black colour wherever possible.

    Silver bodies tend to be more popular, based on what I hear from shop salesmen
    Hence u might want to consider silver if your concern is resale

    You are welcome.. But I forgot to mention that for black lenses, any wear and tear will be more apparent - that might affect resale value
