Is my Canon EF 50mm F1.8 II Lens a fake? That’s the question I asked myself after reading Service Notice: Caution Regarding Counterfeit Canon EF 50mm F1.8 II Lenses for Digital SLR Cameras. I bought my Canon EF 50mm F1.8 II lens in a reputable outlet but what bothered me is that I could not see at all Canon Inc on the lens mount side. I took a magnifying glass but still I could not make out “Canon Inc Made in Malaysia” imprint. I took photos of the lens to post the question online and to my surprise and relief clearly saw in the photo what I failed to see even with magnifying glass – “Canon Inc Made in Malaysia”.
