Iíve had mostly black over the years, however my *ist film body was a nice change and if a different color is offered Iíll go for that. If I win the lottery the red 645D red limited will be mine..

I have black SLRs and chrome SLRs. My X-T20 is silver, so I went with the black K-3 III. All my lenses are black anyway, and I have a camo lens cover for the 150-450.

The K3 III is my only silver camera as well, and I have one single silver lens, the DA15.

My K1 is black, as are all my ff lenses. My K3 is a gunmetal gray Prestige Edition, and now my K3iii is a silver Premium Edition. My silver 20-40 Limited looks great on either APSC body, as do my black lenses.

I have one silver lens, the FA 43mm, but I'm not taken by the way it looks on my black (analogue) bodies. I expect black lenses on the K-3 silver (whenever it arrives) to look better. And I'm curious how silver on silver looks in real life. I might prefer black lenses on silver.

IMHO

since the silver K 3 III really isn't all silver, it is rather a mixture of black and silver

the black lenses look good on it
