There is no difference between the ones in the black tins...the Premier that everyone uses with OMS...and the lightfast ones in the silver tins. The lightfast were just "guaranteed" not to fade.

The reason that you got such a good price is that the lightfast are now discontinued as a separate line. Beginning next year they will be incorporated into the regular Premier line.

There is some discussion on the pencil artists boards as to whether or not the lightfast pencils will retain their number code and just change the prefix. For example, a change from LF716 to PC716. Prismacolor says that they will retain the number.

What I wonder is whether some of the PC pencils will be discontinued over time. Some are not lightfast and some are very similar colors to some in the lightfast line. I guess I'll just wait and everyone else!

I'll stand, my soul, Lord, to You surrendered,
all I am is Yours.
