Indeed, it is sometimes used to check the approximate manufactured dates because certain batches of certain lens may have some QC-related problems, etc, etc.

You have to do a lot of searching through the various photography forums; not only the B/S forums... it's rather tough work, of course.

Anything specific you have in mind?



So where do they find the information on which batch of lens have problems? Any website to see?

Not only knowing the lens code will determine if it's a stolen copy, it also determines the age of the lens. For example for Canon's L lenses, a code say UU0612, 'UU' is for year 2006 of manufacture and '0612' is manufactured on June 12th. So for this year, the code should be 'UV'.
