So far black leads 8 : 2.

I generally agree with most of the arguments - black being more practical and durable, but silver being sexier. Not sure that reflections on silver are really an issue. But I am quite disappointed to learn that silver is actually fake painted plastic. My first DSLR long time ago was a silver plasticky 300D, and it really didn't age well. I tried to take good care of it, but regardless even the tiniest scratches were quite visible and ugly. Since I plan to use M6 II for at least 3-4 years and probably take multiple 100K photos, black is definitely a way to go. Thank you so much for helping me make a decision!

I went with silver because I've been waiting for a silver "casual" camera for a very long time. My AE-1 and FTb are both silver and it's a look that I just really enjoy. It doesn't really look "professional" for sure, but the M cameras are my travel cameras and it's looks great. If I buy a second one to replace my M5 or M50 then I will certainly get black.

The only camera that looks good in silver is the Leica M7, so I vote black :D

I voted for black when I bought M6 ... if I upgrade to M6ii I may go silver for a change!
