    I'm adding yet another m4/3 body to my collection and am smitten by the Olympus E-PM2 (mainly for the upgraded sensor and small form). Most of my other m4/3 bodies are black and I'm looking for something along the lines of my Silver E-P1. From online photos, the Silver PM2 looks stunning.

    What do you think of the aesthetics of the Silver PM2 and other colors such as White, Red and Black, are there any issues with peeling paint or other build issues with them?

    So far I have not experienced any paint peeling off having used epm2 for a few months. Even black lenses look quite fine with it, since the the grip is also black in colour.

    I was torn between the red and silver when I bought mine, but the red won my purchase in the end. It looks great with both black and silver lenses, too. I haven't had any issues build or paint wise, and the paint seems to have a nice soft touch coating that aids in grip. Luckily, I don't think you can go wrong with any of the color choices! :)

    I always had black cameras till I got my silver EM5. I added a silver EPM2 and think it's gorgeous. Looks great with black and silver lenses.

    Silver is best ! I think the silver finish may also be a little more resistant to wear and tear perhaps ?

    I like mine in white, it's a little metallic if you look up close. Red is catchy.

    Silver. it looks great with silver or black lenses, unlike the other colors.

    Silver. It will look nice with silver 17mm 1.8.
