Pretty meaningless, but whatever floats your boat...

I prefer the silver and black look, but I'm absolutely positive because that's what most decent cameras I used were back when I was coming up in the '60s and '70s. I had a Canon half-frame, a Minolta SLR, a Pentax K1000, and a Nikon FE-2 (IIRC) that were all silver with black. So I was happy to get the X100 that way and the OMD that way. And if I get an X100s or an X20, I'll probably go silver and black too. But I have a black X-Pro and had a black X10 and never minded even the smallest amount. I don't think it amounts to a hill of beans when it comes to stealth out on the streets. I've done street shooting with all kinds of cameras with all different styles, including a bright red GF1 for a while. Never mattered a bit.

So get what you like - it doesn't matter beyond that...
