To be seen or not to be seen, that is the question. I prefer black because I like street shooting, and black tends to be less noticed. A small black OM-D is a bit more drab and is less eye-catching. A silver OM-D is a bit more attractive, a bit flashier, and more eye-catching. If you like an eye-catching and prettier camera, I think the silver is definitely the way to go. I prefer my cameras to be more drab and thus less eye-catching, so I lean towards the black.

I wouldn't worry about a silver OM-D being eye-catching in street photography. An FF DSLR on the other hand...

Dark and drab is just more low-key than silver and shiny. I definitely think that the silver body is prettier, but I'd rather have a low-key camera than a shiny, pretty camera. If I had the money to get a Leica, I'd get a black one rather than the silver one, too. Especially with today's cameras being so good in low light shooting, a dark camera just disappears into the darkness of low light environments.
