    Default Curiosity ......

    Hi everyone,

    Juz got the EF 24-105 lens during weekend and one thing I note is that the lens comes in a white box ( no logos/printings ) instead of the "official" canon box. I forgot to ask the sales guy although I think it must be from a kit lens package that they give me. Isit " normal" practice ?

    I am not familiar with canon. Is there a serial number you can check with canon for authenticity? Maybe the last guy just wanted the body.

    That is part of the kit lens. Some shop sell it as such to lower the price.

    better check if serial number matches that on the warranty card. I think there should be an online facility as well.
    Exploring! :)

    Eh ... most lenses OEM made in C, I, T, M etc etc etc

    5D MkII - Kit lens.

    Canon didn't bother with the fancy printing or slightly thicker box. Only plain thin cardbox box for kit lens.

    Lens should be exactly the same/local warranty etc, so no worries.

    I always wondered why got box and original packing, unless is a truly rare or collectible lens, can fetch at least $50 more~!
