Does the new model have the same name as the old one? It seems to.

How am I to be sure if I buy online that the seller hasn't actually got a late-production old model? It would be an easy mistake for a seller to post a photo of the new model, even not on purpose.

The new version will not only have the "A" on the lens barrel as part of the "Art" line but will also have the same new smooth style finish that the other 3 new design lenses have (35 1.4, 17-70 2.8-4 and 120-300 f2.8).  It will be easy to tell just looking at the lens whether old or new.  Biggest giveaway is no more gold ring on the 30mm lens.
