The original OMD is such a beautiful camera in silver with the black grips. Liking this in silver so much made me wonder why I was disliking other silver cameras. It's not the VF hump... (answer below). The lens mounts flush with the body, so both color body looks good with either color lens: I'd pick the silver for its retro look, but would be perfectly happy with black, even with all silver lenses: Next, I had a black & silver PM2. Lenses do NOT mount flush with the body like on the EM5, but the lens ring is colored black, so IMO it looks good with black or silver lenses. Actually, the ring is silver, then black, then silver, and if the lens is black, black again. But they're thin and compliment the body's silver highlights. Plus there was no other black color choice in the PM2 model to distract me from liking this one. I think it's a tolerable zebra with either color lens (minus the blue lens rings that is!): You know the "silver-nose" lenses that are black with a silver ring? Not so cute: Even worse. Just one ring to interrupt the black: With a silver GM1, you still get the black body but a silver ring. So every black lens looks like a silver nose. This is good... ...but this is not because the ring is an abrupt color change: Good: Odd: View attachment 410836 Silver on silver looks the absolute best!: But this is also pretty nice to my eyes: But if you're stuck with a black lens and silver camera you get this: Silver PL7 suffers the same fate with black lenses: Next up, my aesthetic review of the "Orange Ring": Kidding! Conclusion I just ordered a black GM1. It was between that and the PL7 (smallest cameras with electronic shutter or EFC) but I decided that the GM1 is the ultimate in small and inexpensive. PL7 I can get in a few months when I find one cheaper. Thanks for reading. Crown me the king of camera porn for a day!
