But is the camera the same "white" as Canon's "white" lenses? Otherwise, the white lenses will just look dirty.

Agree; either that or a botched attempt to match (or both).  The photos suggest it's white, not the ugly shade of washed-out beige inflicted on those marvelous lenses.  Then again, it probably doesn't matter - the SL-1 is a bit small for those lenses; it works best with primes.

This is prettier  ::)

highly subjectiv. i think the DF is ugly.

+1

The Df would look all nifty and modern...40 years ago.  Now it just looks dated.

The DF looks like the kind of camera that nowadays fetches 20 dollars second hand  ;D

As for the White SL1: Erhhh NO!

And now for the opinion the world has been waiting for, …mine!;  :o

Canon couldn't give this sterile K-Mart kid's section looking thing to me.

Well, maybe,…it might look cool hanging over my shoulder to match my white hat, tie, belt, spats and shoes while I dance Gangnam Style.  :P

(But what do I know, …I'm an old fart.)

I personally would like a white 40mm f/2.8 STM!

The lens itself does have appeal in an odd way, like a tiny great white... I don't think it'll be available separately though...

Okay, I'll ask:
Why are cameras black, anyhow?

This is just the first in a whole new line of elegant, white cameras.

I understand they'll call it the Great Gatsby line. And in that line all the Rebel cameras will be renamed "Daisy."
This quote deserves a lot of credit  ;D

I wish they would make an off-white pancake. After spending a week in California, the 40mm is what I used almost the entire time (on a 5D2 with grip), just because it makes the camera so much more compact. The only thing the current pancake is missing is weather sealing and a little bit of light gathering. A 40mmf2L is pretty much my dream walk around lens right now (that and a 24-70f2 zoom).

Okay, I'll ask:
Why are cameras black, anyhow?
Cameras that used film needed black bodies to better protect the sensitized film, against stray light  Since pretty much all the pros were using black colored bodies, black became synonymous with "professional" .... This just continued on to the digital world ... also, black generally is considered "professional" even in other fields e.g. wearing a black suit is generally considered "serious and professional" ... but I don't think any technical aspect stops manufacturers from producing colored DSLR's, other than the fact that most people will not opt for colored DSLRs ... I know I would never buy a white, pink, green etc DSLR bodies ... so I suppose it is just a marketing decision now.

That's the nicest looking Canon body I've seen in a long time, & that white 40mm is giving me serious lens envy.

The proportions are all off on the Nikon DF.  The <A HREF="https://www.google.com/search?tbm=isch&q=nikon+FM-3a">FM-3a looked great</A>.  The DF looks like the basterd child of an F4 and a Zenit.

See, that's what I don't get . . . I think it looks fine; I wouldn't mind a 5Dmk3 in that color . . . maybe even prefer it (as long as it's the same build quality)
