p.1 #1 · Canon 100mm f2.8 macro lens production question


I am trying to figure out if there is any difference in the actual product between a Jan 2008 100mm macro lens and a newer version. I am referring to the non-L version of this lens.

The box says 4657A006[AA]

If there is a difference, other than age - how would you think that should affect price versus a newer one - say 2011 version?

As is frequently the case with macro lenses, this one looks brand new and appears not to have been used much at all.

Thank you!

No difference that anyone at Canon admits to.

Obviously, old tooling wears out and is replaced, machine tools are updated, lens calibration tools are modernized, and so on, so the newer lenses might be made to tighter tolerances, or ... they just might use cheaper materials and processes.
