Take a look at Fuji and how their silver bodies out-sell their black ones in every model.

An high-end aluminum (or other metal) finish may look good, especially on retro models, but it doesn't come cheap. Unluckily, this looks more the average "cheap" silver plastic, and couple with the cheap fake leather, make it look too much like an Hasselblad Lunar wannabe <G>. I could understand more if Canon made a limited edition with a true high-end finish, this maybe will sell well in some markets, but IMHO looks a bit ugly.

The white "stormtrooper edition" IMHO looks better (as long as you use it with the right lens), I would make a deal with Disney/Lucas and sell it with an R2D2 able to read cards and store images - it would sell like hotcakes to Star Wars fan... still I understand it can find some buyers who like to be "different". I could buy one myself, it looks toy-ish enough less people may take you seriously when you shoot... and sometimes that's a plus.

I think a white battery grip would be The most wanted accessory
Way too much gear to list, terminal GAS.  Grand kids will have to buy their own cars.

The white one is cool - literally ... at least in the sun. Great move and will fit the 4/70-200 in design and temperature after being exposed to the sun!
Maybe supporting less sensor noise under sunny condition and not to hot air compared to the black model. Hopefully available as body only in europe.

Just another case of a nerfed or crippled camera made to protect 5D IV and 1DX II sales. There is no reason, in 2017, the SL can't have the same features as a 1 series camera for the price of an SL.  ::)
5D Mark III, Canon A-1, Voigtlander Vito, Tamron SP 15-30 f/2.8 Di VC, 24-70 F/2.8L II, 70-200 f/2.8L IS II, 35 f/1.4L II, 135 f/2L, Helios 58 f/2 (x3), Canon FD 50 f/1.8, 600EX-RT (x7), Streaklight 360ws. Jumping ship to SoNikon any day now.

The color theme is similar as with PowerShot G9 X. I think they are trying to push actively more colors than just black. Up to 2006-7 or so such colors were common. All PowerShot A series cameras were silver. Also DSLR bodies had different colors.

IMHO what is missing is an "Hello Kitty" edition, and a gold plated one, with diamond buttons.

You know, I would have to seriously consider a "Hello Kitty" version...

I have to admit, a nice brown leather on a brushed silver body would look very nicely retro.

I would like to take that version -- sometimes it is good that your equipment is underestimated by others :) While it is capable of great IQ ...

When your selling antiquated technology  you need to add gimmicks like trendy colors.  :'( Canon used to lead the digital photography field now they are really falling behind Nikon and Sony
