I know this is a joke, but I never understood why they abandoned selling entry level models in funky colours. It was a gimmick, and maybe it made them look like toys, but you can bet it sold them a lot of cameras. It is exactly the kind of thing that will sway someone getting their first DSLR, for whom all the specs are just numbers without much meaning. A fun color makes people *want* it on an irrational "I really like that" level. It's the same reason the silver lenses sell for more 2nd hand. People will look for reasons to buy X over Y, if X appeals to their gut. People will pay a bit more for something neat, even if they know rationally that it makes no difference.

Well, I mean, it would come with all those lenses. Not only do I not have any of those currently, they'd be limited editions. And also pink. Nothing not smart about it... Can we make this real, please? My credit card just told me it's bored out of its mind. ;-)

They do look good. I reckon buying both pink and blue (or graphite) versions gives you the choice of being discrete but well groomed, or 'Hey look at me!'. Even I could have ladies talking to me if I had a pink camera with matching lenses.

Joke aside, graphite gray and dark navy look really nice.I feel they look nicer than the silver edition.

I'd consider buying one in that "dark" (light) Navy blue right this minute, if it existed.
