Pentax Q7: Black or Silver?

The headline says it all: I have the original Q in all black and B&H is offering the Q7 body only for $399 today only: Dec. 22. The Q7 may fall to something like $299 when this model is eventually closed out. But that may be quite a while because the Q7 is pretty new and the regular going price is in the $479-$499 range. So I think this deal is worth jumping on. But... black or silver? What say ye, my fellow Q enthusiasts?

Between only those two choices? I'd get the silver one as you already have a black one.
Black / Yellow would me my abolute favorite though.

I went with silver for my Q7, my Q is black.
Helps me pick it out easily when I'm deciding which to take out.
The silver lenses look good on it.

Oh and get the 02 combo even if you just wind up selling the lens.
It's cheap.
Don't forget your warranty.

I just ordered the silver Q7 kit. I thought about this for a bit. Did I really want another small-sensored camera? But I already have the original Q, the 01, 02 and 06 lenses, and the official Pentax K-mount adaptor. I have pretty much the full kit and it's a lot of fun for non-critical work. The Q , like the K-01, is really something to be considered on its own and on its own merits rather than comparing it with other cameras.
