    Not sure if you are asking about the frame or the lenses. I have boxed Ti/Gold and spare boxed lenses. Both look the same. I wasn't aware of any other gens of this model. I am no expert but curious to know as well. I think it is one of the nicest frames, you dont see many.

    Apparently there are 3 gens. The one I am referring to is the first gen frame. Yes, they are rare but, there have been 3 on UK ebay in the last 2 weeks, and a very rare X-metal grey with gold that is extremely rare.

    Yes they did, like the plasma. I have first and second gen ones and they're a bit different. Not as drastic as the plasma though.
