Hi everyone,

Thinking of shooting things with fire in the photo, the lens would be quite close to it (and maybe even extension tubes will be used).

In here:, Canon explains why Canon paints their lenses white, is to protect the lenses from heat.

Would like to know if this is a concern.

Not sure if lenses will be damaged, but the surface of it for sure. But only if you get to the fire too close. Otherwise the heat and high temperature is not that risky.

If you can`t change the situation - change your reaction.
