Which one to sell?

I have 2 K-01s, both hardly used, and as I really don't need two and with the K-S2 looking piquing my interest, I was thinking of listing one of them on the forum. One is black and one yellow. Can't decide which one though. I know it is a matter of taste, but which would you keep?

Thanks!

I doubt there will be a significant difference in resale value, so just keep the one you like more IMO

I'd keep the Yellow. I own a Yellow and have realized that the reaction I get to it is FAR different than to my K-5 or K-3. Many have commented on the yellow in a positive way and I get more spontaneous smiles when I pull it out than with the dSLR.

Yep. The yellow is very iconic and outstanding. I might be biased, seeing as I love my little yellow K-01.

Hmmm, the black is slick, but the yellow has a personality of its own. Tough choices

Keep the one you tend to grab most.

The yellow 'brick' may become an antique some years (at least 50 years) from now.... I am keeping mine....

I kept my yellow brick and had it full spectrum modded. People smile when you pull it out.

OK, looks like a groundswell of support for the bumble bee !

update -- Thanks for your input...just put the black one up for sale. Glad I'm keeping the bumble bee.
