Re: How common is ‘Error 1’ on 24-105 v1 lenses?

I wouldn’t worry too much about the build date. Some older lenses are in like new condition. The ribbon cable eventually breaks after a lot of use. Just look for one in pristine condition without much use.

Also, most, if not all, EF 24-105mm f4L USM lenses have a date code on the mount. Here is one from Aug 2011. If it doesn’t have a date code, it would need to have a 10 digit serial number in order to decode a build date.
