Just wondering, which do you prefer? There have been some occasional comments on silver vs black DLs so I thought I would post this and see what reaction it gets. Over the years I have had several silver finish Pentax film SLRs, the DS shown here is the first black Pentax I have owned.

First time I have tried a poll. Remember I am asking which you prefer, not which do you own. I find the silver Pentaxes do look much better than the silver Canon Rebel since they use the traditional silver wrapped inblack look rather than all silver withjust a black grip.

Is the question which one do I own or which one do I prefer?

Which one you prefer, I guess I should edit my original post.

OK. I guess I would pick black if the price was the same but I think the silver makes a handsome camera too.

Black all the way baby! Silver makes it seem like a point and shoot. A big black badyjust seems more professional. My 2 cents.

I think that the silver is the retro look. As a child I was always impressed by my Dan's Contax camera, the light meter he used, and how much better his pictures were than any of my Instamatic pictures. But somehow I never thought my Sony F717 (silver and black) never looked as serious as my old Pentax ME. I think I prefer the black, though I wouldn't turn down a silver camera if it gave me the same pictures.

there's silver, as in brushed steel or aluminum

then there's "silver" which is closer to cream/beige thyat makes my DL look like a cheap fugly toy.
