    I hadn't heard anything of this, but apparently a silver variant X Vario is now available. Quite handsome.

    I'll be hanging on to my black variant, but all things being equal would have preferred the silver.

    Black ones are down to $2099 at B&H, silver are something like $2300 at B&H and strangely still $2800 at Adorama. Silver does look nicer IMO, but not $200 or $700 nicer.

    With a bit of eBay hunting, I'll bet there still $1700 - $1800 refurbs out there for the black. Refurbs are checked by Leica and have a 90 day warranty. I'll guess the silvers are quite a bit rarer.

    I looked at the $1800 refers, but chose to spend the extra $300 for a brand-new one.
