Olympus 150mm f2....advice.

I'm looking at a possible purchase of the above mentioned lens.
I don't have any Olympus SHG lenses.

What should I be on the look out for regarding the lens apart from its obvious initial condition, listed as not having a mark on it.
Can I tell the year of manufacture via the lens serial number. If so how?
The seller is not the original owner.
I do have an E1, E3 11-22mm 14-54mm and an 50-200mm.

My shooting is just for pleasure, mainly anything that moves and then just to be sure
anything that doesn't move.
I can afford the lens and would just love to own a SHG lens.

Looking at upgrading to an E5, just missed the very "low" price at McBain in Canada.

Any help would be greatly received.
