    I always wondered why some of the lenses were white too.

    The white ones won't fit on Nikon bodies because they are made by Canon.
    I think Canon's "Pro" lenses are white but asking on the Canon forum would probably get you are more accurate answer.

    The while lenses are the Canon L lens. They are white/grey because they don't heat up as much as a black lens does.

    yes, the reason i asked is because i want to buy the white/grey 28-70 F/2.8 nikkor. nikon do make them not just canon. so i guess its just for the heat reason then.

    Yeah the only lenses that are grey that I've seen are made in white(light grey) are the 600mm f/4, 400 f/2.8, 70-200 f/2.8, 28-70 f/2.8, 300mm f/4, and a silver 28-80 f/3.3-5.6. All these you can buy at B&H, but some are back-ordered, discontinued, or out-of-stock( 70-200 f/2.8 and 28-70 f/2.8)
