I would have agreed with you until a year or so ago. More and more people want to know what camera I am shooting. Using a M10, people just assume(d) it is/was a film camera or a retro digital. The SL, well, not so much. At first I told people it was a Leica. Then when I would bump into them again they would comment on the camera and the cost. This led to a few conversations that were not ideal. I saw the SL2-s was blacked out and that got me to thinking about doing that to my SL2 and SL. I won't decide for a few months because it breaks my heart to think of doing that to my camera.
