Why not offer personalization and make money out of it? I actually like the mustard/yellow color that I can see in DPReview's "Reviews/Previews" webpage. I think it really looks good against black background.

Why stop at the logo?

As fond as I am of the orange Pisces I can agree to mustard yellow as a designer color! Now we just need to find it in a nail polish.

Only if they throw in one of those cool hats the guy is wearing :). The color should be neutral so as not to distract from the camera logo.

Hmmm.... maybe Sony is secretly sending us a status message here. A mount's future has changed from orange to silver. Now we need to know what silver means???

I said the same thing when I saw the silver A on my A99...  I think I'm gonna find a way to paint it the old orange color.

Best solution ever

Make the logo led back-light. glows to the color of your choice when you turn it on.

I can't imagine it actually costs them less to make the silver one (part # 4-143-883-31), but it is listed at a few dollars less to purchase. $11.75. I suppose even if they saved 1 cent per camera by going with the silver then they would do it.

I missed this Mister Andrew...thats not a cent but $4.20 a camera!!! I am beginning to think a conspiracy is in place. When I order my camera I am going to ask for the orange model!!

I like this idea. It could be one of the designer looks! Since you are in the business I may have bring you in as a consultant!

I changed the red dot on my Leica M6 to a black one. Black it out.

But we're not embarrassed to be using Sony. Nothing to hide.

I'm disappointed I can't get a "Sony A99" blackrapid sling with orange stripes on it!!!

If the Leica mobs find out about this you could be in trouble! then again Leica people probably don't travel in mobs... they have people who do that for them.
