Can anybody figure out what the numbers on top of the lens are. To me they look like 22 and 11 which sound like f stops not focus distances.

I'm pretty sure it says 25-400 for the zoom range. The F-stops are F2.8 to F4 which is listed on the front of the lens.

Looks like it says 25-400 to me too.  And that makes perfect sense as if its 9.1mm actual == 25mm EFL, then 146mm actual = 401mm.  (25/9.1*146=401.1)
Rounding at either end makes 25-400mm EFL the proper spec.
