No, the number on the lense is only the lense serial number. Lenses are/were made by companies separate from the manufacturer of the camera. Generally, if you search for Rolleicord on Google you can find pretty good information but you may have to do some digging to find something that looks like your model. The best bet, is to go by the make/type of lense to narrow it down. Rolleicords were made from the 30's to present day, with various features and lense types, mostly Schneider Xenar's or Zeiss Planar's. You can buy a brand new Rolleicord 2.8G today, for around $3000us, so the look of the camera can really lie about it's age.

Search for things like Rolleicord (lense maker) (lense type) (lense f/number) (shutter type). Shutter type will be Compur MX, MXV, Synchro-Compur M, MX, MXV, etc. Possibly also Compur Rapid. Shutter speeds can also narrow it down, but I believe all Rolleicords were B-500 shutters.

Where would I find the serial number on a Tamron 90mm Canon macro lens?


all of my Tamron lenses have the serial number on the barrel of the lens right next to the "Made in Japan" label. When the lens is in the camera the MIJ label is on the bottom side. I hope that helps with your lens

Where is the serial number located on the Nikon D40X


The serial number is on the bottom of the camera. For lenses, the location varies but usually is either near the Nikon logo on the barrel or near the mount. See the photos on this page.

BENQ E610 camera, system error 0010


Dear Sir,
System error 0010 on BenQ E610 means that lens inside the camera is offset against axis.Solution 1) You can send this camera into the BenQ service for new lens change.As this camera is pretty old it is not economical effective.Solution 2) Or you can try to punch the camera to the bottom.Sometimes this fix process can help and return lens to the correct possition.But as i wrote this is not 100% fix process.

Best Regards

Where do i find the serial nb


On the bottom of the camera, just below the lens, there's a sticker. The sticker starts with Canon PC1267, the next line reads DC 3.15V, and the line directly below that is the serial number.

My husband broke a friend's camera lens.


On the Canon website, I cannot find both part numbers. The lens you are naming is a Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS (Image Stabalizer) USM Autofocus Lens. The bottom line is if that it is designed for the EOS camera system. You should be fine with this lens. I do not believe there are two different lenses. Are these numbers from the "same" supplier?

Old vivitar lens to adapt to a new digital camera


You don't need the serial number, you need the model number. Look for numbers inscribed on the ring around the lens opening or on the body of the lens somewhere.

Vivitar lens


Can you provide model on the Vivitar and the model of the Rebel? The serial number provided is not sufficient to find exact info on the lens mount. If you take a picture of the lens mount and upload it, it's better.

Best info I can give is this ...

The Canon Rebel is an EF mount and will accept also EF-S type lenses. Once you have the mount type of the lens, you can then locate a mount adapter that will allow you to attach it to the Canon.

For example. If the VIVITAR lens has a T-Mount, then you can get one here. Realize though that old lenses do not benefit from new camera features, so autofocus and other things may not work.

Let me know more info if you can ...

Hope this helps, if so, rate a FixYa! ThankYa!

E 18 problem


the E18 means the lens system has a problem. I had it with my S2 and sometimes it worked, sometimes not. Eventually it stopped working. The only solution was sending it to repair, they changed the lens system.
