Could someone tell me where on the following lenses Nikon has cleverly hidden the serial numbers?

AF lenses:

  1. AF Nikkor 28mm f/2.8 D
  2. AF Nikkor 35mm f/2 D
  3. AF Nikkor 50/1.4 D

On my 50 f/1.4 D and 24 f/2.8 D, the serial number is engraved on the aperture ring, at the 5 o'clock position when you face the front element  of a mounted lens. The engraving is often subtle but oblique lighting will reveal it.
