Symbol on some Nikkor lenses

    Does anyone know the meaning of the symbol with a "10" surrounded by 2 arrows that make a circle around the number?

    I bought an 18-200 today, and it had that symbol on it. I thought it might have to do with the lense's range (11+), but the same symbol was on a brand new 85 1.4 as well.

    Also, the 18-200 was made in Thailand, and the 85 was from Japan--therefore, I don't think it was a factory code.

    My new 70-300 VR has the same symbol. I have seen it mentioned on a couple of other sites with no real answer given.

    If I were to guess, I would say it probably relates to recycling in some way. . . but that's just a guess.
  3. So... I guess I was wrong believing that it meant "factory reconditioned and checked to be 10/10"...
    And I rejected a perfectly like new 12-24mm lens because of that $@%&£ sticker! :mad:
