Only you can answer that question. Would you be happy with either color. Would you be thinking about the color you didn't get? It's purely cosmetic...you do not get additional functionality with either colors.

thnx Alpinmen,

As I was used to using my SLR'S ( REBEL-G) 1.5X TELE (black) on my S2IS (silver) now that color concept is not big issue.... but Y price diff. is it purely Bcoz the color don't sale more or something else?

If as U said its purely cosmetic issue than $40 =may be 1 UV filter........:-)

the silver body looks more low-tech. so it depends on your business. if you are going to be a wedding photographer or you want to look good, get the black one because it is a symbol of professionalism and quality.

but if you do not want to be noticed or looked at get the silver one. me and my friend went to a museum recently. i had the black XTi and my friend had a silver XT. The guy at the door held onto my camera but let my friend through because he thouight it was some cheap p/s. very good idea for photojournalism and candid photography.

but then the choice is all up to what looks good. if you have a black mercedes, get the black one to match your car. if you have a silver BMW motorcycle, the silver one would look awesome slung over your shoulder on that thing.

I have a black d-rebebel (yes, the one that started it all).

When I am at car shows, people take a 2nd look at me and my d-rebel, thinking it's like a 20-d. I show that it isn't that, but a black d-rebel and they are surprised.

I personally like the black body...more professional looking...:?and more of a factor, imo!

BTW, the galleries at www.topspeedtuning.com/coppermine were all shot by me using my drebel!!

Good luck w/your choice of colour!! :?

I think most of are camera snobs and worry what we look like when we are shooting as much if not more than how good the results are going to be. I think if we were at the level of Chris Rainier (National Geographic) or Philip-Lorca DiCorcia then we really would not care as long as it have the feature we needed.

However I am not that good so if I were choosing I would get black.
