I voted black because:

  1. The silver finish doesn't match the aluminum silver lenses.
  2. There are more black lenses which don't look nice on a silver body. 

Caveats:

  1. Scratches will be less visible with the silver body.
  2. We don't know how the silver plastic parts hold up. 

If the lenses exactly matched the A6000 body color, and there were more silver lenses (35 f1.8, 10-18), than the silver version would be my choice.

While I prefer black, I just thought of a benefit: black absorbs more heat. Im places where shooting conditions could get very hot, silver or whatever it might be may have a slight edge.
