I have owned all of the Q models except the Q10. I had a white Q-S1 a year or so ago but let it go. Looking to find another 08 lens I came upon an 08 attached to a Gun Metal Q-S1. The price was better than right so I picked it up expecting to keep the 08 and pass the Q-S1on. To my surprise I really like how the Gun Metal version feels. The grey parts of the body have a grainy texture which I find feels good. In the past I have been dismissive of the colored Qs (although my Q7 is yellow) but I find this Red Gun Metal Q-S1 really attractive. Do all the Q-S1s have this texture or is it reserved for the gun metal versions? Maybe I just did not notice it on the white one.

My black Q-S1 has a mat texture to it. It's subtle, but there if you look. I waited a long time to find a black body. I wanted to be low key for candid shots. I think your color also sounds good.

I, also, usually have had black but in the hand this new gun metal one pleases me.
