Some certain guys like Henri Cartier-Bresson or Alfred Eisenstaedt excelled in their profession by using chrome plated Leicas while black painted ones were already available for them (even for free). The majority of Life magazine photographers were pictured with chrome Contax'es before the introduction of the M3.

FYI, my black D800E apparently "annoys" almost everbody around if they note it raised to my eyes whereas my chrome M2 rarely gets the same attention, rarely.. Being on the rangefinders since 1963, I ordered the X100S with one thought in mind: The best street camera is the one enabling you to "focus" on the subject at any aperture the moment you "frame" your picture. Leica's can not do the "the moment" portion.
