    What ever color it comes in, so long as it does what is expected of it.

    I used to prefer all black until I got a chrome spotmatic. The Nikon F looks nice in chrome too.

    Actually, my Minolta XE-1 is both. A chrome top with a black prism cover. The US designated XE-7 is an all black version of the same camera.

    I've always prefoerred the black, though I own both. My favorite is a Black Nikkormat EL. There must be a reason that starting with the F3 I think all "pro" Nikons are black.

    I voted for black because I usually like that on 35m cameras. On the other hand I like black and black & chrome for Hasselblads and I mix parts of both.

    I have a black and a chrome Olympus OM4Ti, but if I was knocked down I would prefer people to find the black version in my camera bag.

    I should also add that when TV's had the chrome finish I refused to buy a new one.

    Chrome... it wears better and reflects the heat.

    Chrome - because they don't make it anymore (well, except for $5,000 Leicas)

    Black, of course! Everybody knows that black is better! That's why the pros use them??

    What are we talking about, anyway? Mag wheels on cars?
