Do you have a silver or black OM-D? Do you wish you would have chosen differently?
I got black simply because silver wasn't available at the time. I would have chosen silver
After looking at some videos, silver looks better from farther away but black looks better up close. My silver will arrive in a week!
I waited for silver, and I love its retro looks. No regrets. It looks great with black or silver lenses.

BACK IN BLACK, I hit the sack.....
silver.... because it was there and color realy doesnt matter much to me.
1 of each. Prefer the look of the black. But I've always been partial to black cameras.
I bought a silver one because black wasn't available. I love the color now. But I aim to get a second OMD (for backup), and I will make that one black just to have one of each.
Black. I love black cameras.
But if anyone has a purple M9, I'll take it off their hands.
Silver because silver is cool and more professional than black, cause black is unprofessional with silver lenses, and that's why Olympus makes there best lenses silver cause they know silver is the new black, and they making fun of the posers with black cameras, because a black camera with a silver lens is uncool, and only uncool people buy black!!'
Please disregard the preceding message as Zar having too much winters cheer, nothing I said other than my E-M5 is silver, can be held against me in a court of my peers!!!
Move along people nothing to see here
Silver. Looks more classic to my eye. Dad's minolta SLRs are silver with the black leather type crap around the middle part. Love the look of this camera!
Silver for me. I liked the look and the way the grip looked better than on the black. I'm just glad we had a choice at all!
1 of each.
I wanted the silver, but when I went in to the store to order it they had a black one so I bought that because I wanted to be the first at my camera club to own an OM-D.
But after that I was still lusting after the silver one. As well I didn't like the feel of the wrap around material of the black; I had handled both bodies at an Olympus pre-release event, and already knew this but still had bought the black to be first.
Now I use the black as my regular camera (will get a CS-36FBC so I won't have to touch the wrap around material), and the silver one for special events, or when I want to show off because I get more comments from other photographers.
2 Silvers between my girlfriend and I.
No contest in my opinion.
Before REALLY looking at it, I was going to go for the silver... especially since I was going back and forth between the omd and x-e1. Then as I started leaning towards the OMD and REALLY giving it a good look, I fell in love with the black. It's all "murdered out" and clean, especially with that grip texture.
Black camera, but I mostly use the silver primes. Ah well, if I could switch now, I probably would go for the silver. But it is not important enough to take a financial hit by selling and buying a new one.
Since my OM1n and OM3 are both black there was not really any chance that my OM-D was going to be anything else but black.
Interestingly given a choice of colours for their EPL-3's both my daughter and son both chose black - perhaps it's inherited
Silver, just like the old days.
Silver ... to match my hair (it was the nearest they did to white for a real match)
I love my silver. Black is such a boring, traditional look. Also my girl said the black one was ugly and that sealed it But seriously, the silver is such a classy and unusual look.
