Why are black Leicas considerer more beautiful or collectable? For me the silver finish is much more classic and above all characteristic.

I've never seen the M8 in silver for instance, but quite a few in black. Wouldn't that make silver more collectable?

I prefer all my cameras to be silver, it's a matter of personnal test, don't listen to something else, if you prefer black, get it black.

Now when you talk about M8 as a collectable item, you get it all wrong, it is electronic it as no such value as were the mechanical Ms.

my counter argument to that would be that the M8 will have some collectibility value as it is leica's first digital camera and has now been discontinued.
