Black as midnight, black as pitch.

Blacker than the foulest witch.

Is how I want cameras.

Mildly disturbing...

Black is stealth.

I prefer remaining stealth to take natural shots of people and events.

You probably underestimate the part of the users that want to be as discrete as possible and not walk around with an ostentatious pro looking DSLR with a big name.

Silver is mainly good for weddings.

But I can understand that some people want a camera that best fit the colour of their skin and the style of their glasses.

I like my red Nex-3.  I wish I could have gotten my Nex-5N in red.  Red says "toy" -- people are not scared by "toy cameras" (even if they are really real cameras, in disguise.

I would have said... blacker than a black hole. After all, that thing can eat light like there is no tomorrow.

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.

I find that the plastic of the A6000 looks cheap because it's rather shiny, as compared to the classy matte surface finish of the plastic of the Sony RX100.
