Have these been out for a while? I always thought the white lens was the sign of Canon...

I had the option of buying a gray 70-200 VR I from B&H some years ago, but went with the black since the gray lenses have typically been offered at a price premium. The gray lenses are nice for staying a bit cooler when outside on sunny days.

Marianne,

Correct about the colour. They were actually shown in the NIKON Catalog as Light Gray .

Price Premium......Price gouging by some-one. They were the same prices in Japan as the Black lenses.
