    Who has got a Silver GX1, would be interested how it looks with different lenses on. Thanks!

    I would prefer a black one, but just for a change I think a silver one will be a good idea. what do you think of the silver?

    Dave, mine is black. The silver is sharp looking and would go with any lens.
    I'm not into the fashion statement stuff but the silver is very sexi.
    That my friend I'm into...

    That's true for me too. It responds as good as it looks.

    mine's silver

    I've got a silver one with a black 7-14 ASPH lumix lens on it.

    Looks good, takes a nice picture too.

    I have the silver, but honestly wished I had the black now instead. Yes, the silver looks nice and is better looking with the silver Oly 45 or my 7.5 fisheye, but feels more standout'ish compared to the black gx1 my friend has when we go out shooting on the streets or public areas. I will probably only go with black bodies in the future.

    I was reluctant to get the silver, a friend talked me into it. Very happy with it.

    I originally wanted black, but I'm glad I have the silver, especially since I now have a black E-M5. The silver actually looks pretty good. Here are some pics of it:

    How do you find the 12mm on the gx1? I have the 45mm, thinking either the 12mm or vf2 will be my next purchase.

    The 12 on the GX1 is my 'slam a cam in a belt pouch' choice. It's a lot of fun to shoot with. I haven't been using my GX1 much since I got my E-M5, but it's a great little combination.

    Hi,

    I have a silver gx1 as well. IMHO it looks better than the black especially with the pana ans oly silver/ grey lenses.

    To go against the grain: I wanted a silver but ended up with the black. My roommate got the silver and I can't say I'm as thrilled by the looks of it in person as I was before. I'm very happy I went with the black, personally.
