did your copy get the "metal gear upgrade" or did it have metal gear since you bought it?

From some post on dyxum, where people were trying to correlate serials and lens faults , I fond that serial 381xxxx is ~ october 2007 and 382xxxx ~ march 2008; my copy is 383xxxx and it's plastic.

Is this the Sony serial # or the Zeiss one? (I' thought I'd read on earlier posts here that there is a different # on the box/barrel than on the front/certificate, as in some other Zeiss/Sony lenses.)

Good question. Mine has 1867250 on the barrel by the mount and 44789061 on the plastic around the lens.

I bought mine used, so I dont know when it was originally purchased.

fwiw... lens only (no front or rear lens caps) is 448g
