Get what, Paul ?
The red replacement foot ?
A non-descript camera ?
Black paint job for your 200 f/1.8 ?

I don't have the 200/1.8L yet...
I did use it and the 200/2.0L IS before...

Somehow, I prefer the images from the 200/1.8L ...

While I was looking for one, this black painted one came up...
So, here I go.... one more time with the monster.... this time with black faced one...

i would love a black version of the 200f2 for sure.. the quality of the finish on this 200f1.8 looks proper!

Please tell us where we can get this paint job done, too. I would like to turn my 70-200 2.8 IS II into a black one!

You Canon guys have a case of black lens envy?

Yes, black lenses are bigger and more appealing to the opposite sex, or so I've heard.

Are you going through a goth phase or something?

Just don't take it out into the sun. It'll superheat, expand and the front element will drop out.... honest

Looks awesome, Paul! Can't wait for your photos.

Isn't the black paint a custom order from Canon (before assembly)?

I'll bet the photos will look just like those from the white one with the normal foot...

Yes, but they will be full of angst.

Assuming the paint didn't get on the front element!
