Getting ready to pre-order the OMD-EM5, should I go black or silver?

    I know this has been asked as a poll... but I wanted to get people's opinion on which color I should get. I am leaning towards black but upon looking at the current lens line up that I have (and want to get in the near future), silver might be the way to go. Just to add, this will be my primary travel camera and wanted to go as stealthy as possible but with the oly 17mm, 14-42mm mk II R and 45mm lenses are all silver, would this color cambination not look too good? I may be wrong but silver just might be too faddish for this cam.......your thoughts.... thanks.

    I tried in vain to think of a whitty retort. Ultimately, corporations are people my friend, so go with silver.

    It looks to be a great camera, and I'm sure I'll be picking one up with the 12-50 once a couple hundred are shaved off the price, but it is clear some have become stark raving mad over its release :)

    Doesn't matter - after you get it, send it to Colorware and get them to make it look like a Pentax K-X. It's the only sane thing to do if you want to be unique in this bleak world of black and silver.

    I think the Ferrari Hasselblad setup would look better...

    Oh, and silver, but that's me and some nostalgia setting in (First SLR was a Minotla XG-M (I Think))....

    Why?

    It's your money, your choice, and you know your own taste better than any of us does. So why ask us?
