I don't understand what's Panasonic's reasoning for not releasing it in US.

I expect they don't want to have to deal with the issue of trying to guess what percentage of black vs. silver cameras to order and stock. They get screwed if they order too many of one and not enough of the other. Retailers have the same issue - they also tend to dislike multiple SKUs for what's essentially the same product.

Yet... somehow Olympus managed to offer both color versions in the USA for their OM-D.

And perhaps it was the fact that the silver OM-Ds were in highest demand, and were constantly out of stock at first, that Panasonic decided to offer silver only in the USA?

Of course, we all know that if Panasonic offered both colors in the USA, someone would start a thread complaining because they wanted one in red.
