    Ferrari red? White, green, blue, black, yellow, grey, silver? Other colour?
    I assume that we will have different colours every year (like cars).
    It has become a marketing item.

    Yeah Herman, i like the silver look. I would have liked to get the GF1 in silver but they didn't have any in stock, so i went with the standard black. Silver would have matched well with the aluminium on my macbook pro though.

    I quite like a nice tan in the summer - but you have to be careful these days because of the UV rays

    Classic black for me - helped me go for the E-P2. But then I've ordered a handmade case in camel. Hope I like it.

    Bill and Bill, thanks for your replies.
    I suggest to buy a white body, put it into sunshine to get a nice tan.

    I'm with Vidar - silver or black.:cool: Mainly because I like to be unobtrusive with a camera.

    I like my red G1, and I like the blue of the E-PL1 and G2, but my favorite is the classic chrome and black like the E-P1. Also enjoy a good all-black camera, especially a nice black leather grip with black paint on metal.

    I like my blue G1. After having a couple of items made of plastic literally melt when left in my car here in Texas, I have avoided expensive black electronic items every since.

    Flat Black for me... but wow.. Thanks for the pics of the G1 texas... I was planning on picking one up with how cheap they are now on ebay, haven't seen one in person yet.. That's just a little smaller than a drebel... Think I'll have to pass..

    I went with the "gold" color in the E-PL1. I wasn't sure about it from the pictures. When I got to the store, I saw the gold was actually a warm silver. I liked it immediately. It has some kind of cool retro look, and as Iconindustries said, it matches my macbook pro better than the blue or black models.

    Fwiw, when you put that Lumix 20/1.7 on a G1, it is a good bit smaller and lighter than a D Rebel with a comparable lens such as the Canon 28/1.8 or even the 28/2.8.

    That would be a good idea. The lens makes all the difference. Here are a couple snaps I made in a local camera store:
