    Only the L grade lenses tells u the year, mth and day which it's made. Some other non-L lenses also have a serial number on them.
    Canon EOS 5D, 24-70 f/4 L IS, 50 f/1.2 L, 70-300 f/4-5.6 L IS, 600EX-RT. Sigma 12-24 f/4.5-5.6 EX.

    It gives you information of the age of the L lens, and the place where it was "born".
