Black model is preferred by serious photographers?
10 months ago

I see some complaint of GX7 not being released in black in the states. I merely thought that was a personal preference. But some people seem to think black is preferred by serious photographers (although the article is about EM-1, the message is there):

Is this true? Is there any reason that the black color appeals more to serious photographers?
