That's basically my question. Is black that undesireable? Surely there is no technical differences...

No difference between the cameras other than color but it does surprise me that the silver would be more expensive.

Usually, if there's a difference in price, silver will be a little less expensive.

Black is considered the most popular color by most people.

Thanks for the quick reply. That was my feeling/understanding, too. I mean, I recall some people complaining about the silver color and gave my reasons for preferring it.

I was looking for a "backup" camera (for my existing 5N) at a good "cyber" price. I'm not impressed with the 5R (or NEX 6's lack of touch screen) so I thought I'd make sure I was covered in case the one I have broke or was stolen.

While I was looking, it was evident the silver almost always cost more. I finally ordered a black one from 42nd Street for $359 shipped.

I'll mount my 18-200 on one body permanently and probably put the 50 on the other (since that's the two I use the most).
