I've seen the pro's use all kinds of coloured bodies, lenses and lens hoods. Last time at the Reims racing circuit I saw a guy with a d3x, a giant lens and a sun hood with the ferrari colours and logos.

So, people who think differently coloured camera's aren't serious are just not well informed.

Any colour that isn't purple isn't a serious camera.

I get the stormtrooper statement a lot. "It looks like something a Stormtrooper would use." For the most part non-photo people like it. I'm not around many photographers so I haven't seen/heard their reactions.

I get a lot of different reactions. At school, people think it's either cool or go WTF is Pentax? On the streets, I get a lot of remarks about how it looks really nice and one time some dude was all like I <3 Pentax!
