What version is yours? Old or new? New lenses should also have a silver C engraved in a circle somewhere..
All the best from northern Italy, Dino.
I'm on the NIK side of photography.

Mine is the new "C" version.

Thanks Rich; how do you like it? does it focus fast, and accurate? I'm studying it, Adorama has it for $499.00US, and I think thats fair, if it focus's and locks on without hunting.

The current version I have 1st at 2.8 4.0 not 2.8 4.5, is my "walk around" lens on my D90, and I use it on tripod some, I do like it it just has "funky" focus issues, other than that I'm a fan of the lens.
