If these were new lens designs it might make sense, but why offer it as a white *version* of existing lenses?

If there is an issue with thermal expansion affecting optical or mechanical performance, why didn't Laowa make the original lenses white?

Does the introduction of these white versions indicate that the black versions do suffer from optical or mechanical problems in hot weather?

Or are these lenses white purely for cosmetic purposes?

It is not purely cosmetic, it is for future space tourists to avoid overheating of their lens and their corresponding EOS R3w, the white edition of the R3.

No, it is some marketing IMO, they get lots of articles in the internet and a few will buy it. Costs less than paying for classical advertisement.

The video looks nice enough but it is impossible to tell what it’s really like because either the lens characteristics are muted colours and low contrast or that’s the editing.
mother than that 9mm cine lens sounds interesting though the white is nothing more than a gimmick at this point.

How does the image look on an R5 without cropping?

If I understand correctly (and please correct me if I don't), on the FF sensor it's a equivalent to a ~13.5mm lens.

How do the edges look?
