And yet all you people who object to others admiring you taking photos count the number of white lens at a sporting event. Do you see the irony of your complaints?

No, i fail to see the correlation. I'm the one who mentioned the percentage of Canon's white lenses at sporting events, and said no such thing.. about objecting to people "admiring" me taking photos.

I have to admit I suffer lens envy and do notice white lenses. But some of my favorite photographers, I don't even know what lenses they use. I'm pretty sure their lenses are black because they are landscape photogs.

The TS-Es are black, so I suspect so. ;)

The TS-E 90 covers that segment quite well I thought. :p

From my experience, I can walk all day with my 200F2.8 with hood attached (about 9" in length) and no one seems to notice. With the 100-400 attached, I get "cool look at that guy, he has a telescope on his camera".

Why's everybody being such a pr!ck to the OP?:confused:

Because they are members at the penultimate boys club, Sports Shooters.

For what it's worth, I can't stand them at all. Exclusive clubs are for the weak.

Guess I need to clear up a couple of questions since I started this 'debate'.
First, yes I am charging her -- $5.00 to cover the cost of mailing her a disk with the high resolution images.
Second, this is one of the few times I have 'given' away any of my images. It was Christmas, I was not there to make a few dollars, and I enjoyed doing her a favor. I can only imagine how happy it also made her daughter.

I actually live about 7 hours from the Dollywood park so it's not a place I go often.

Last - the only reason for my post was because she spotted me with the long white lens. Had I be using a 50mm she probably would not have approached me.

One of my friends, who does not own a camera, asked me, if I would make some pictures for him at a given date and time on some sport event from his doughter.

I explained him it will not work, since I have to be somewere else at that time, and sadly, I cannot manage both, BUT if he would like, I could give him my camera, and he can then take some pictures himself. (Of course, I showed him the basics quicly before, so he has an idea, how the camera works.)

So, the day came, and I gave him my Camera, he took actually quite nice pictures, but that is not the point.

So my friend went to this event, and stated making some pictures, when he was approached by a guy, with some camera, asking him, if he can help, what settings is he using. Well, he was using Automatic mode :D

I think she saw the quality of your equipment, I firmly believe people know the difference between a point and shoot and higher end cameras, lens had nothing to do with it, and had a very good idea you knew what u we're doing. Numerous times when I was on a cruise, couples have approached me and asked if I could take their picture with their point and shoot and at that time i was carrying my T2I and a 28-135 lens. I was happy to do it because it was a once in a lifetime opportunity for them to get a good photo of them together and not paying a premium for a staged shot by the ships photography crew (I always had pole coming out of one of their heads just kiding.)

Well, I think white stands out more than black. But it's not that big deal, I suppose. But still it would be cool to have an option to choose color of the L-lens, black or white :).

Agree with you about white lenses against a black camera.

I also agree with the OP in relation to the attention-getting of white lenses, regardless of brand. However, I prefer white lenses over black ones in areas where it gets very hot during the summer. I imagine that one could fry an egg on a "black" 600mm L that has been under the hot sun for a couple of hours :) Just kidding!

I think people are much more likely to notice the differnce between a 70-200 2.8L and an 18-55 than a 5DIII and a Rebel.
