Hmm, they both look quite nice... the silver has a retro look, but I think black works best for the plastic bodied cameras. Silver looks nice on my K-1000, but black is a bit better for the *ist series.

I'm not a fan of he silver, but I nearly ended up with one.
When I went to get my DL I was told they were all out of black. I called around a few other shops and they were all out too, so I went back and was going to get the silver.
The guy got out a box, apparently containing a silver DL and opened it to check everything was there. It turns out it was a black one after all!

The DL2 is even worse though, I only recently noticed the PENTAX logo on the flash popup is actualy a reflective silver colour! talk about bling bling!!

Thanks for pointing that out :sad:. I had to go check, as I thought the logo was white! How wrong I was.

Hey Gumnut, where did you get the blue tape (must be a southern hemisphere), cool.

I like both colour schemes, the simple professional black of the DS and the classically applied silver of the DL (I already mentioned my dislike for "modern" interpretations of the silver camera, like Canon uses on the Rebels).

Too bad Pentax didn't make a portrait grip for these models, that would be a big plus.

ummm
i borrowed it from somewhere
the glue on the original things melted and they peeled off one summer
i had blue tape form somewhere that fitted nice
so i used that, it is still on there years later
it made it easy to spot when i belonged to a camera club
there was no mistaking which was mine
the red is reflective tape and is on the pentaprism things around the top too
makes it east to find if i go bush at night time
lol

Well, I think this poll has run its course, with a result of 9 to 1 for black (as of this date)I think the question has been answered. Thanks to all who voted and commented.

Happy New Year.

Ira
