Hi, I would be curious to know how many of you would welcome if the currently white Canon lenses were available in black. Do you think it would be a good idea if they were available in both colors ? My guess is that many would welcome this and it would not mean a serious extra costs (production, logistics) for Canon. Do you think that the white finish has any technical advantage (protection from overheating under direct sunlight?) or it just serves pure marketing purposes. Yes, it is undoubtedly impressive to see the huge amount of white lenses at sports and other kind of events (advantage for Canon only) but I personally still strongly dislike the white color and it is - I think - also a disadvantage at both candids and in nature. OK, you can always put black stockings on the white lenses (as I do) but it looks a little stupid on these precious equipment. (however, for me it is still better than leaving it white). Also, for those who also not in favour of the white color, how do you go around it?
