I tried looking on the forum but didn't see anything current on this. Can I buy Canon "L" touchup paint direct from Canon without having to go the aftermarket color match route?
Thank you.

Personally I'd get the product from Canon. Having worked in an auto dealer with a body shop, admittedly 50 years ago, I remember it often said that white was the most difficult color to match well due to the presence of all colors in varying degrees. In contrast, black was said to be the easiest sine it was the lack of colors. The finish (gloss) is another consideration.

Wow, 50 years ago! reminds me of henry fords saying, you can have any color as long it's black, I work in conjunction with a body shop, today's black paint is one of the hardest colors to match and blend

So it is available direct from Canon? That's what I'm trying to find out.

That link doesn't get into whether or not paint is available just that there was a color change unless I missed something? I'll have to see if there's a Canon number I can call regarding this.
Thanks.

Found this info on Shutterbug's site when they were reviewing the 70-300L: Tip: If you’re the kind of shooter who is hard on gear, you’ll be happy to know that Canon sells white L-series touch-up paint. You can order it through Canon Parts (#CY9-8078-001) for $14.41 plus shipping.


Canon 7D, 5D, 35L, 50 f/1.4, 85 f/1.8, 135L, 200L, 10-22, 17-55, 70-300, 100-400L, 500D, 580EX(2).

Not that far back! It was however the days of the Ford Falcon and my favorite the Desoto Adventurer.

I also think you will find that non-metallic black is relatively easy but so many blacks today are metallic and that is what makes them difficult to match.

Canon parts sells it (or used to sell it).... One thing nobody mentioned is Canon Parts has a $25 minimum order.....

BTW for $14 (one can) you get enough paint to paint a couple lenses. I'd say its 4 OZ or more. not a little tube of touch up paint....

Well I called Canon parts direct today and it's a no-go. They quit offering it about three years ago. Go figure. I guess that leaves Ebay etc. for any who need it.
Thanks everyone for the posts.
