Olympus em5 mark iii black or silver

Hi, I am considering buying an olympus em5 mark iii to replace my Panasonic G80, I have a GX9 and the newer sensor seems to produce a fair bit better results, also the colours on G80 are not great and I want to reduce post processing time. I tried the olympus em5 mark iii in a store and to be honest feels quite plasticky although the dial clicking feels reassuringly solid, the IBIS is amazing I can get about 1/8 with my G80 but I got sharp pictures at 2 seconds with the Olympus and my hands are rather shaky, amazing!

Iam though split between the Olympus silver version which on close inspection looks plasticky and the black version which the shop did not have so difficult to judge. I wonder how well the silver version wears over time, do scratches on silver plastic body look a lot worst than the black body.  Anyone with silver or black version that can provide some info on this?
