Re: OM-D: Black/Silver Quality or Usability Differences?

You idiot! EVERYONE knows the silver EM5 is vastly superior: Higher resolution sensor, Quad lens capability for 5D images, and built-in hand massage grip!

OK, just kidding!

I do own the silver, for the completely frivolous reason that I love the retro look, and it reminds me of my uncle, who shot with an original film OMD among many other bodies back in the day. Once I decided on the OMD level of investment, I found myself caring much more about how much I liked the look vs. what others thought :-D. Although an added benefit has been how much my teenage son and his friends like and comment on the way it looks. Different and cool. High praise indeed from teenagers! I truly don't care about any slight differences in grip, and would accept slight inferiority for the coolness I personally see in the silver.
