Hi,

I am about to add a Canon 8-64 super 16 zoom to an XTR package, and I was wondering about the generations of this lens, and what to look for in terms of serial numbers etc. Does anyone have an SN list, and can anyone clarify whether is is 'mark" denotation that I should have my eyes peeled for? Saw one older looking lens referred to as a Mark 1, and I would ideally like something a little bit newer.

Thanks,

Isaac

IIRC the first were black, then Grey. It was replaced by the 7-63 about 10 years ago.

I would look for a Grey one there is an issue with the black ones I think they have a internal element which separates due to a bad adhesive.
