Apparently the case for Canon's non-IS version of the 70-200/2.8.

I doubt this was intentional. I'd bet the lenses still on the shelf were built several years ago.

And a pro workhorse lens like this is going to generate a lot of repairs.

This statement makes no sense.  A high end pro lens is not going to be broken a lot.  It's built well and won't stop working easily.

So this is probably bad forecasting plus a long-dismantled production line.

OTOH my 2004 1dsII has been repaired twice in the last 18 months and still had plenty of parts, including a complete top deck.

Did Canon service laugh at repairing a 9 year old camera?
