PMW-200 SXS cover silver..... really?

Not that this has any effect on me buying a PMW-200 ( I'm gonna for sure) but does it ship with the "ugly" silver cover where the SxS cards go?

Sorry if this has been asked a million times but I had to ask.... every demo or unboxing video I see has the silver cover... I saw one video where the guy said that the production models will ship with a black cover.

just curious..... thanks

Yep, PMW-200 is Silver, PMW-150 is black. Same with F5/F55, F5 lens mount is black, F55 is silver. Guess in Sony's mind Silver denotes better than Black.

Gold is reserved for the S35mm sensor CineAlta cameras. :-)

But the F65 should have a ring of diamonds around the lens mount.

You guys are killing me. I just 'launched' coffee through my nose! I love 'video-centric' humor. : )

The dept responsible for designing the SxS door probably didn't get the memo to make the door black. It does look odd.
