Dear Experts...

Is it possible to differentiate a refurbished lens from a non-refurbished lens (both canon) ? Does it say 'refurbished' anywhere on the body or does it use a different serial number ?


My 24-105 is refurbished.  The box came as a plain white box and the only marking was a gold sticker saying "refurbished" on the lens mount cap.  If I wanted to sell it as new as part of a kit for a 5D 2 or 3, nobody would be none the wiser.  But nobody else is going to get it.
