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.

Ignore any advise about the lens and fire.

Go ahead and stick that lens right in the flames and let us know if it's made of some kind of super fire proof material.

Buy some tide pods while you're at it---they're delicious.
