    E-p1 white or silver ?

    Seen some pretty good deals online for E-p1 bodies, temping me to spend out on one, the question is .. white or silver? Love the look of the white one:cool: , but will it just look naff in a couple of years? BTW I will prob be using my Panny 20mm on it most of time.
    Cheers guys for any thoughts:smile:

    I prefer silver. I couldn't tell you why.

    Here's a useful trick for difficult choices. Toss a coin, and when you have your outcome, you'll know if it's the one you wanted. If you get that nagging disappointment when you get tails instead of heads, go with the other one.

  3. I just don't think white suits the look of the E-P1, and the colour of the handgrip in particular is of questionable taste. A white GF-1 however, now that's a good looking camera.

    silver is definitely more of the retro color, i think it looks the best. and if you really have some extra money to spend get this

    JnK- PEN(E-p1 EP1 E-p2 EP2.) real leather skin. black - eBay (item 220688155609 end time Nov-24-10 22:31:55 PST)

    it will make the camera look sharp.

    I use that trick all the time; works really well. Unfortunately, I didn't use it for my E-P2 vs. GF1 decision. That's how you end up with a second camera on order and the first for sale. :redface:
