Which is why after drooling over the silver one, I jumped for the black... It seemed more subtle and "down to business."
I do however suffer from being artistic and obsessive compulsive. Forgive me for wanting things to match, or at least look good together.
Conditions and artistic freedom aside, consider this scenario:
You go to the store, try on a bunch of shoes..... you find a pair that fits perfect and meets all your needs. It comes in two colors, and both colors are the same price. You like both colors, however, you've had your eyes on a pair of laces that allow you to fly like superman. They only come in one specific color... Are you telling me you wouldn't make sure the shoes you bought were gonna look good with the laces you want? After all, your going to be flying around like superman for everyone to see while wearing them. Get real, you would definitely make sure they matched.
I mean I could say: I don't think of shoes as a fashion accessory, I just see them as a tool to keep my feet safe from environmental hazards while I fly around with my magic shoelaces. But that's just me...
But that would make me seem like I was looking down on you for wanting your shoes to match... Even more, it may seem like I thought you had merely chosen those laces because you liked the color of the shoes that matched them... Never mind the fact that you actually really wanted the laces because they allowed you to fly around like superman!
Is there something wrong with wanting my camera to match a lens I really want to buy in the future? I suppose I should force myself to pick the ugliest combination I can think of so no one criticizes me for it... But wait, then someone else would come along and criticize my fashion sense or my artistic ability... Since I can't win, I should just go ahead and kill myself now before anyone else doesn't like what I'm doing.
