    I love my E-M1, but its looks aren't the reason. I think the grip is the bit that, despite being highly ergonomic, is just plain ugly. In silver it looks even more conspicuous, so for me the black is still the choice. Maybe you could paint your E-M5 black for a while so that your girlfriend won't notice it when the E -M1 arrives!

    Plus, with silver you're much more likely to have people ask if you're shooting film.

    (Whether this is something you care about is entirely up to you.)

    Plus, a silver body looks better with the silver lenses. Which, as we all know, are optically better than the black ones.

    Silver has that nice retro look about it ... does make the EM-10 look just that much better than a Sony A6000 :)
