Would it change your mind if you knew than many shoot black Leica M body with a silver lens?

A choice would be nice, but black and silver combination is not bad, especially when the lens is actually metal and not gimmicky silver coating on plastic like many Olympus lenses.

I don't use chrome lenses on my Leica, either. For one thing, chrome finished Leitz lenses are usually much heavier than their black finished brethren.

Well, then what about the silver 50mm 1.4 Summilux, which is made in silver and black, not chrome?

Steve Huff, for example, is shooting a brand new Leica M with his silver lens. To me its good and different, but it's a matter of taste.

I would personally prefer that Sony spent more energy developing new lenses in stead of complicating production, by introducing new tone lenses.
