I hope so, Commander, for your sake. The Emperor is not as forgiving as I am.

Haha! But yeah. I still prefer the regular black with white lettering.

Okay, I get it. Stealth the PENTAX on the pentaprism for that custom look. But all the printing on dials and buttons, too (black on black)?

To me, that's where function needs priority over aesthetics.

A deep blue with silver lettering would sway me. But jet black isn’t a great appeal over the regular look. I’m certain someone will buy them however.

They address that and say that they dials and such can be seen at a slight angle. I’m guessing it’s easier than we might think but still a small bit harder than normal.

I think that’s a missed opportunity honestly. That would have dovetailed into the aesthetics nicely.

I guess with one of these, you would save needing to cover all the labels over in black tape,
But then it won't get that edgy tatty look after a while,

Shouldn’t a monochrome camera come in shades of grey (50, for that really specialist market )

While I agree with your sentiment, I really think it would have been a marketing coup.
