Lens info rubbing off. Any way to get it replaced?
« on: March 26, 2012, 06:50:02 AM »
So I've had my Canon L lenses for a while and some of them have the lens info rubbing off. Is there anyway to get it replaced to look like new again?

If you provide a image, someone might be able to help.  The info is done differently on different lenses.  Some have it on a snap out ring on the front surface of the lens, for example.  This piece can be replaced, assuming its a current production lens. 
 
Here is a example of a easily replacable front ring.

It's the outer ring:
