I've seen someone paint their 70-200 body to match their lens. Looks pretty nice to me. And sharpies come in all types of colors these days so you aren't just limited to black.

You can order the white paint through Canon. The part number is CY9-8078-001.

Why?

I believe Canon states the white lens reduces heat to the Flourine (?) element to minimize expansion and prevent loss of image quality.

Seems kinds of crazy to paint or marker up the lens so you can pass more discretely...if that's why it is done.

Just my opinion, but markering up that lens looks terrible. If one wanted to make it black, they should have just actually painted it, even rattle can paint wouldn't look that bad.

A sharpie? really :rolleyes: :lol:

There should be some lens abuse hot line we can call, and have that poor thing put in another shooters temporary custody.

I've used a Sharpie to fill in the knicks and scratches on my Drainpipe but to use it on the entire lens? You are brave!

The only reason I can see to hide the white lens is when doing bird or animal photography where the white might scare them away. There are lens coats for these occasions. If someone thinks a big black lens will somehow go unnoticed, they are dreaming. Using a sharpy is just plain dumb.

This thread is about painting the hood white, not painting the lens black. There seems to be a few confused people here. :confused:

I'll take your word for it, judging by that lens you seem to know all about "Ghetto" ;)
