Everything ok.
White Polar bear play with white Canon L-Lens.
I think he would have denied to do such with black bearĀ“s Nikon toy.

So that's why Canon makes white lenses!

If a Nikon lens had fallen in he would have spat it out due to the foul taste in his mouth :)

OMG this is just pure awesome...

I don't think there is any other mammal that could have done something like this, Polar Bear's are an epic animal. Thanks for posting this.

Yeah, that would have saved it for sure! (Especially if it were a "polar"izer, as ewheeler20 suggested.)

:rolleyes:


I wonder if the lens' owner put in an insurance claim on it.... "A polar bear ate my lens" would be kinda hard to explain. Thankfully there's photographic evidence.

Can anyone tell if it's a Mark I or a Mark II? I can hear a good upgrade argument now, "Well, of course I have to get the new Mark II to replace the Mark I the polar bear ate."

Can you imagine the absolute "oh shiiiiiiiit" moment the woman had when she saw her lens bouncing along the ground to be used as a cheap chew toy by the Coke spokesbear?
