This question is only somewhat tongue in cheek.
Why is so much of out equipment black? We enjoy our hobby in the dark. Is there anyone here who has not fumbled around looking for a black lens cap on the dark ground in the middle of the night? I have no money at all but I think I'd pay a premium for white or yellow cables that would show up in the dim light of my red headlamp and be easier to avoid tripping on.
I know certain parts need to be matte black to cut down on internal reflection, but cables? Lens caps? The external parts of anything?
I love the fact that my ES ED80 is white. The black carbon fiber version looks way cool in the daylight but....
Anyway, any opinions?
Clear skies everyone!
