Did Canon get the styling right on the SL2? What do you think?

I like the color choices the way they are
4 (18.2%)
I want one in black. Real cameras are black!
6 (27.3%)
I want a "hello Kitty" version.
5 (22.7%)
I want flourescent orange so I can find it in the dark.
1 (4.5%)
I want a "Disney" version because I like Goofy cameras.
0 (0%)
It does not have an APS-H sensor so I don't care.
3 (13.6%)
It is the wrong colour so Canon is doomed!
3 (13.6%)

Did Canon get the color choices right on the SL2? Is the color choice a brilliant marketing move, or is it an act of desperation? Now is the time to have your say because (as we all know) all the Canon executives closely follow this forum and despite the fact that we are not representative of the market, will blindly follow whatever we suggest...

And most important, have fun!

Choice – singular?  In North America, it comes in black and white.  In Japan (as the Kiss X9), it's also available in silver. 
EOS 1D X, EOS M6, lots of lenses

Really by fun: There is a "No matter what color, it has the wrong AF!" choice missing ;)
sometimes you have to close your eyes to see properly.

Thank you for offering the H sensor size option. All other debates paled in comparison to those.
That's it, I'm switching to Rollei

I like my black one, but some may be more interested in how they look than how they function

I'd like a silver one, but it's unlikely that Canon Australia will sell it in Oz.

I'm considering the white version SL2 just for situations where I don't want to be thought of as a serious photographer.  I don't care for the silver one, although I do still have two of the old EOS-10s commemorative edition bodies in a silvery gray color with the very rare (but nearly worthless) EF 35-135 mm matching color lenses.

At one point Pentax offered the K-50 in 120 different color combinations.  I think they also learned that wasn't the best business decision.  However, it does seem in some cultures the camera is considered a fashion accessory!?  My wife certainly matches her purse to her outfit... I guess I should match my camera to mine?  In that case I'd need the plaid flannel or denim blue jeans model!
Two systems:  Canon & m43-Olympus/Panasonic

Exactly the same reason I lug my Big Whites around.   ???

This is not the mini 80D you are looking for.
