    but we can know easily the camera is canon or not even without the white lense a. It is strange that white lenses draw much attention as we know some black lenses are also very execellent.

    But the common colour for lenses are black. White is usually the L lenses of Canon that makes it unique.

    Perhaps is the contrast in colour to the common black body.
