Nikon makes at least three white lenses which we could be looking at here:

The Nikon Telephoto AF-S Nikkor 300mm f/4.0D ED-IF AutoFocus Lens - Light
Grey which you notice goes for under a grand USD.

The Nikon Telephoto AF-S Nikkor 300mm f/2.8D ED-IF II AutoFocus Lens - Light
Gray which goes for five large.

The Nikon Zoom Telephoto AF VR Zoom Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8D G-AFS ED-IF
AutoFocus Lens (Vibration Reduction) - Light-grey which goes for a grand and
a half.
Very star wars looking

Light grey or white lenses are also made by third party lens makers for
Nikon or other mounts.

A white lens does not a Canon make.
