What the!?!? White Nikon lens!!

Now here's something I've never seen before. A white Nikon tele lens! Apparently called "light grey", they are hard to get hold of, and frankly, I think they look ridiculous!

Re: What the!?!? White Nikon lens!!

I know! Can you even believe they make such a horrid object! It looks tacky. Dunno why but I don't think it looks as bad as that on Canon, although I prefer black....

Trust me, it does!

What is the reason given for being white? Is it the same as the laughable Canon excuse of thermal reflection (in which case where are the white dSLRs seeing as they suffer far worse from the effects of heat?!)

Perhaps they are fed up with the TV pictures at sporting events showing most of the pro togs using white Canon lenses, which makes it obvious that they are not using Nikon.
