question regarding codes
« on: March 27, 2013, 05:53:43 AM »
ok,so Canon lens codes let us see year of manufacture - e.g. Z denotes 2011

my question is what's "normal" for a new lens ?
i.e. if I go into a store to buy a 85L II , what should I expect to see as the code - 2013 or is 2011 normal ?

I know it doesnt REALLY matter for the lens use, but I do notice when it comes to selling/trading people will try haggle a lot saying the lens is x yrs old etc
5d2 , 5d3 , eos3 , 35L , 100 2.8 macro, 24-70L II , 70-200L II , 135L, 17-40L, 600exrt
