Ok , this has pesonally freaked me out but my new 70-200 f/2,8 IS ii has no date code.
Contacted canon who (at first) said," I believe from that model onwards , date code were not used , instead a 10 digit code on the body was, Let me investigate"
" we can't be sure and you would need to send the len in for inspection to make sue it wasn't counterfeit"....
is there really counterfeit lenses out there?
And would Amazon be selling them?
My lens looks the part, focuses like I would expect, but still freaking me out¬!..... Anyone with the same situation?
I've found a few threads but nothing definitive.##
am I alone?
