Namaste,

How can one typically know the manufacturing date of the lens by its serial number?

For example: Canon 8-64 serial # 30304 ( mine )

Is there any more infos that can be obtained from the serial number.

Thanks in advance.

With best regards

Are there a set of letters before the numbers? Canon has never officially given away their date codes, but I found a link to some info on it.
