Black for me

Although I like the look of silver M8s, I find them a bit too showy.

A black M8 with a black lens will be much more discrete, especially if you stick a piece of black tape on the red dot and "LEICA" name on the front, something you can't do efficiently on a silver M8.

An I don't find a silver lens on a black M8 to be hugly, to the contrary.
