If you sent it to the Virginia location I would say be very worried. They may have dropped your lens and fixed it or sent you the wrong lens. I would call/text/email to find out what happened...

Probably they swopped out the black mask at the rear of the lens for some reason - new ones won't have date codes on them, will they?

Well Grant, If the lens is coming from your possession, a date code should really be no worry at all!!!

unfortunately so many people put too much emphasis on date codes.

so depending on your price, it may affect some buyer's decisions....

Bonus special 400L, put your own date code on it!

Worth more I reckon.

Its pretty common to see date codes disappear after service. Save your original purchase records if you want to establish the date.

The newer lenses no longer have a date code.
