I'm finally putting together a spreadsheet with all my gear listed on it, along with serial numbers. Do all Nikon lenses have serial numbers? If so, where are they located?
I found one on my 24-70, but not on the 12-24.
They do, but they're not all in the same place. Also, at times they're in white numerals and other times they are simply pressed into the metal. Look around very closely and you'll find it. Generally near the mounting collar.
If you go to the Nikon website, there is a place to find where the serial numbers are on all bodies and lenses. I would have sworn a couple of mine did not have a serial number until I find this reference. Sure enough, they were there! :tongue::wink:
Mike's on the money....I thought I was going nuts 'cause I couldn't find the s/n on my 60mm micro...finally found it near the base...it was tough to see because it was of the 'pressed in' variety with no highlighting......
One of the first things I do when I get a Nikon lens or body (Accessories also...) is register them on the Nikon website.
There is a spot called 'My Stuff' where you can update your profile (after registering) as well as record the serial numbers to your Nikon stuff. It helps to read the serial # off the warranty card or box and enter it while you can still read it.
It's easy to print the page after all your stuff is recorded for insurance purposes.
how about the warranty papers, if the lens is boougth new or used and deliverd with all papers?
somtimes reading the papers might be the old fashioned, but faster and easier way!!! ))
