flashy or drab?
In reply to MMitchellorg, Jun 11, 2012

To be seen or not to be seen, that is the question. I prefer black because I like street shooting, and black tends to be less noticed. A small black OM-D is a bit more drab and is less eye-catching. A silver OM-D is a bit more attractive, a bit flashier, and more eye-catching. If you like an eye-catching and prettier camera, I think the silver is definitely the way to go. I prefer my cameras to be more drab and thus less eye-catching, so I lean towards the black.

After weeks of research I've decided to try and track down an Omd Em5. I have a list of stores to call. I'm thinking about what color model to buy. I'm getting the 12-50mm kit lens with it.
I already pretty much made up my mind but I'd like to hear everyone's input.
Also I'm planing on buying an
Olympus M. Zuiko Digital ED 45mm f/1.8 Lens for Micro Four Thirds
and Lens hood

-The silver looks like an old OM. Your subjects will think you are using film.
-The black is great for street photography and staying concealed.
