    Bah. Pink. Red. Teal. Blue. Orange. Purple. Those are real colors. Silver, black, and gold are for color wimps.

    It's not even a proper gold. It's got just enough color to give it a name, and no more.

    Don, I'm strongly opinionated when it comes to these things. I really, seriously, love bright colors -- and pretty much any bright color, at that.

    So I'd buy this NEX:

    It's not that I like pink (pink's okay, it's just overdone), but I like color.

    Got that for sure. My daughter just got a Silver 5 and I tried it for a little bit.
    Nice but I didn't like the menu.
    I had a conversation with John yesterday and of course he got me started on it again, especially since he sent me the firmware upgrade link.
    My daughter loaded it and called me with excitement as all the issues I had were fixed.
    The pink is nice but I'd really like a paisley pattern.

    I'm considering this camera. It's very nice in all respects.

  10. Not for me. In my opinion the flashy colors make the camera look cheap.

    Don't you know your camera has to match your shoes and your belt. :rolleyes:

    You don't want to be caught out with a mismatched wardrobe.

    I was going to re-list them for $500.00 as a special limited strap.
    Actually it's $5.00 and $495.00 for shipping....
