In addition to the above mentioned light issues, cans also tend to have less oxidization issues due to bad seals, and they are easier on the environment (shipping weight, ease or recycling, etc).
Cans have a bum rap because of a bunch of myths that have been passed down over the years. If you really think about it the reality simply does not match the perception.
Getting in the can gets a bad rap. All and all getting in the can is a pretty good option.
People should just try it in the can. They might find they like it in the can.
