It is noticeable in every shot from every angle...even in the pic where the Cam has been rained on. Your eyes go right to it. I hope this has been noticed and resolved at the factory.

EDIT: Oh...guess I should have finished reading the thread. At least I'm not the only one that noticed it.
One of the reasons for the discoloration is the fact that the front and rear facia's use a different color primer prior to being painted.It is a special primer that is used for rubber/plastic parts.If metal primer was used on plastic pieces,it would eventually crack,due to climate changes,etc.
