I have had a silver XT for a couple of years and tried to learn every detail of it. I constantly here bad things about the silver cameras. The searches I have done mainly mention they look non-professional. IMHO I get some pretty good shots from my lowly XT. It has trekked with me across gator infested swamps, up glacier clad volcanoes and everything in between, yet performed flawlessly every time.
Is it just the chimping silver P&S crowd that is causing the bad opinions?
Not meant to be too serious, just wondering.
My silver and black Leica Rangefinder has never gotten a bad rap.
