    Anyone thought about the silver and black X20 with a black lens hood? Just wondering.

    I have and think it is a good idea. You can see the end of the lens at wider focal lengths and thus can see the hood even more. If it is silver it will flare into the viewfinder if the light hits it just right, black won't.

    And a 'silver' X20 is more black than it is silver anyway.
