Yes, all new lenses are being sold with the newly designed Silver boxes. If you get one of the white/red/black boxes it is old stock.

Canon has used silver boxes for their lenses before. I still have these silver boxes that date back to the early 1990's.

Ok, Msowsun, thanks for the box information. It's good to know. All my lenses were bought around 2010. Haven't bought new one for several years.

My 100-400 V2 came in a white/red/black box so I'm not sure this is completely across the board yet. Man! Those old boxes bring back some memories!! LOL!! Thanks for that.

That seems odd. It has been more than a year since they introduced the new silver box design. Can you show us a photo of the box? Is it exactly the same as the older white/red/black boxes?

The ones I have seen online all have the new silver box....

HA!!! I stand corrected. :oops: I originally looked up in the closet and only saw the butt end of the box which seemed like the old design but when I took in down....silver. Sorry for the iPhone pics.

From the end it does look like the old white/red/black boxes.

As long as the serials match to the box, you're golden
