used or refirbished?
Apr 17, 2013

Hi all, i'm thinking of buying the Canon 10-22mm lens used from kijiji.  i'm worried that the owner originally bought it refirbished from Canon.  is there a way to look up the serial number somewhere?  or is it possible for something to be wrong with a lens, but it still takes pictures? in other words, you can use it and take pictures with it, but maybe the focus is off slightly or something else?
