Lenses / Special serial number codes?
« on: August 05, 2012, 07:30:33 AM »
Hi @all

I just found an ebay auction in Germany for a 24-105L here:
http://www.ebay.de/itm/110924892918?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

Someone who is interested in this lens asks if the second and third number of the serial number are 22, 44, 77 or 99 because Canon uses this to codify lenses of higher quality. The vendor who claims to work for some kind of magazine or the like agrees and says this is a known fact for insiders.

I never heard something about such a codification and think it is BS. Do you know more?
