Hmmmm... I'm gonna agree with BD on this one.  I have more than one SL and a 
couple of SL2 bodies, but only because I use them.  It may be so I can keep 
more than one film loaded, or one for each lens, but they're all used.  I 
don't particularly care what color they are or in the case of the SL whether 
it has the one-click or two-click meter switch so long as the meter turns 
on.  I DO care about the lens lock release button.  Red plastic, bad.  
Metal, good.
