What is the difference between the H-X015 and H-X015K?? K??
Asked by: Chris
Panasonic only has two versions of their Leica DG Summilux 15mm f/1.7 ASPH. Lens. They have MFR # H-X015K (B&H # PA1517B), which would be the black version of this lens, and MFR # H-X015S (which B&H does not carry), which would be the silver version of this lens. Everything else between the two lenses would be identical except the outer color of the lens housing.
