Re: Too bad about the the wearing and chipping not looking worn.

What I mean is that I would prefer to have my camera look a little worn; I had a couple of film cameras that were worn, exposing some gold/bronze colored metal below (forgot the metal now). They looked rather cool.

I had a black Pentax Spotmatic which had worn corner edges from use. The underlying metal was brass. I have the silver E-M5 and I cannot tell if the silver is paint or plating. Does anyone know for sure what it is?
