Aren't those thread titles like this one annoying? I find myself clicking on them even though I don't want to. My sincere apologies. Well, the distributor who's sending me the X20 wrote back - they don't have the silver, but they could ship out black right away. Silver is next week. Dang! Couldn't do it. Had my mind made up for silver. Had a similar experience with the Oly E-M5: took the black because I could get it right away rather than wait. Still would prefer that camera in silver, but it's black. I know that would be the same for the X20. So, I'll wait for a bit. Oh, heck.
