My wife when given a choice selected the tan & silver version of the G9X.  Her preferred color would be red...I think the M2 came in red at one point.

Canon isn't in the habit of producing different color versions of their enthusiast+ cameras. It's one way to signal that this is for serious shooters.

I saw a nice brown leather classic case for the M5 from canon ... Somewhere ... It was a half-case reminiscent of the "ever-ready" cases of the rangefinder era.

They call it a "body jacket" and it appears to be available in black and brown.

The brown one cane be seen on Andy Westlake's Preview

We used to call those "never-ready" cases.  And they were available for SLR's.  I remember one for the Exacta.

Totally agree. I throw out the case that comes with my Exakta IIb. My Leica M4 never had a case.
