Have some fun with this.
That text is harder to follow than lorem ipsum. However, the pictures tell the story.

(Obviously, there is much work yet to be done on the Google Translator. )

Ooh, I like. Maybe I could paint my Canon 300 with Nikon black paint, rebadge a 5d to say Nikon D800, and impress clients who think I'm capturing 36 MP. Or not.

That's funny.
However, think bigger than D800......think Leica S2-P.

Isn't it a felony in the US to impersonate a Leica? Incamerate?

Darn you. The secret is out.

@Peter - please send me $10 as you bet with others in the 200-400 thread.

You see secretly I have been testing and using the 200-400, but to keep it secret, we did the black Nikon paint treatment and threw on what looked like a Nikon to Canon lens adapter. In reality the adapter was really the buitin 1.4 TC, so you wont be the first in Canada. Sadly when it is officially available I will have to swap it for one with Canon white paint.

Oh no, Robert, you will not get me to accept a bet on 200-400L. Knowing your clout with Canon Canada, you are most likely to get the first production unit as well.

There is someone with far too much free time. A Lenscoat would be just fine or that other brand with the dozens of decal options.

Nobody in their right mind would want a Nikkor to look like a Canon lens.

I think I understand better now how it might have been possible for very many mint 200 f/1.8 lenses to turn up in South Korea several years ago, when they used to fetch close to $5,000 on eBay.

Nikon did not have a 200/1.8.

Perhaps the motive is other.
The same reason the super-telephotos are white in the first place.

If I used a big, large lens most of the time and for long periods of time under direct sunlight, in high temperatures, I would rather have it white, regardless if it resembles or not a lens from another manufacturer.

A black lens under direct sunlight for an extended period of time will always be much hotter than a white lens under the same circumstances.
