Serial number paranoia or real concern?
Jan 20, 2010

I was recently asked to email a 5D-mk-ii jpeg to someone I didn't know. I edited out the serial number from the meta-data as a "precaution," only because I saw several posts in which people avoid revealing entire serial numbers.

What exactly is the concern? How could an evil-doer profit from knowing my Mark II's serial number? How could I be hurt by a third party having it?

Thanks.
