General Notes:
1.) IS issues with analog bodies: There seem to be some minor incompatibilities and dysfunctionalities when using IS lenses with their IS activated on older analog EOS camera models. See EOS Documentation Project for details (via archive.org, slightly different for the 75-300mm 4.0-5.6 IS USM here).
2.) When mounting any of the zoom lenses below to an EOS 40D, 50D, 60D or 7D, the peripheral AF points will not function as cross-types. Vertical and horizontal lines will be detected separately (less accurate and a bit slower). This is due to the optical characteristics of the lenses and the cameras' AF sensors, the issue can't be fixed. The affected lenses are:
  • EF 35-80mm f/4.0-5.6
  • EF 35-80mm f/4.0-5.6 II
  • EF 35-80mm f/4.0-5.6 III
  • EF 35-80mm f/4.0-5.6 USM
  • EF 35-105mm f/4.0-5.6
  • EF 35-105mm f/4.0-5.6 USM
  • EF 80-200mm f/4.5-5.6 USM
  • EF 80-200mm f/4.5-5.6 II
3.) It is not recommended to use IS on tripods. Therefor some of the IS lenses feature tripod detection to switch off IS automatically.
4.) Discontinuation data according to Canon Hong Kong
5.) Canon Production Codes typically consisting of 2 letters and 4 numbers can be decoded as follows:
  • the 1st letter names the site of production: U = Utsunomiya, F = Fukushima, O = Oita (all located in Japan of course)
  • the 2nd letter tells the year of production: B = 1987, C = 1988, D = 1989, E = 1990, F = 1991, G = 1992, H = 1993, I = 1994, J = 1995, K = 1996, L = 1997, M = 1998, N = 1999, O = 2000, P = 2001, Q = 2002, R = 2003, S = 2004, T = 2005, U = 2006, V = 2007, W = 2008, X = 2009, Y = 2010, Z = 2011
  • the next 2 digits tell the month of production
This overview only shows facts applicable to Canon EF lenses. See Obendorfer.at for a more complete listing.
6.) The firmware of some charges of the Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM, 400mm f/2.8L IS II USM, 500mm f/4.0L IS II USM and 600mm f/4.0L IS II USM can be updated to v1.1.1 (factory service) to enhance the responsiveness for more precise focus adjustment, especially in AI servo mode.
Applicable to EF300 SN 790xxxxxxx to 913xxxxxxx, EF400 SN 790xxxxxxx to 913xxxxxxx, EF500 SN 880xxxxxxx to 910xxxxxxx, EF600 SN 880xxxxxxx to 910xxxxxxx.
