Is the X-E1 top and bottom made of metal?
Oct 11, 2012

Under the black/silver top/bottom of the X-E1, is it made of metal or plastic?

The reason I ask is to understand whether scratches and paint flaking would be more visible with the silver or black model?

I thought the silver would show less wear and tear until I saw this picture:

It looke like the corner, next to the EVF, is made of plastic and is scratched.

Can anyone with an actual X-E1 say what the materials are?
