    I love the Silver with the contrasting grip, just looking around I seem to be in the minority

    I agree that the camera in silver looks quite good, but as all high quality E-mount lenses (except the 70-200) are black, I just don't like the look of that combination.

    Not even an option in the physical stores I looked at.

    Mine is all black.

    I got silver because I use 3 Contax G lenses. When I see pictures of the black a6000, I like it a lot. Maybe better than silver, but it does look good with the G lenses. Remains to be seen how I feel about my inbound a7II with the G lenses.

    I don't have one but I like the silver look + less heat up under the sun. I have silver Sony's E /contax g lenses too. Only problem I had with silver Olympus bodies was easier scratching or showing it compared to black bodies...

    I wanted silver, but it wasn't out yet when I needed it, so I was forced to get the black.

    I have a silver 5N, though :)

    Love the look with my dad's old canon chrome LTM lenses.

    i don't like silver bodies because of the reflex in a window

    I preordered mine from Canada specifically because they had silver bodies in stock before they were available in the states.

    I think it looks great. It's the classic combo. Many cameras during the 60's and 70's are silver with black lenses.

    I have a silver one too. Time will not be kind. The demos in the store do not look good. Under the silver paint is black plastic.

    I wanted a black a6000 but accidentally got a silver one. I was a bit disappointed at first I must admit. However, a silver body looks actually great with an FE 55 mm f/1.8 ZA lens. I think it is the black grip part of the body that helps a lot.
