How do you determine the year the Lens was manufactured? Is it VIA the serial #?

I know on that price of 69.95 BP to 108.59 USD then PayPal tacks on another $4 and change. I wanted to read more about the product and when searching I found the Martin Bailey site and get lucky.
I was on the Martin Bailey site but couldnt find the link or something link to FoCal discount. Can you show me how? Thanks
An 11 unit adjustment is pretty substantial, but not so much that I be concerned about the lens.
As for the inconsistent results, the software reports the light level in EV - what was yours? I do most of my testing indoors, except when calibrating lenses at 300mm and longer. But, indoors or out, I illuminate the target with a set of three 150W-equivalent gooseneck lamps - my light readings are usually around 12 EV, and I generally get very consistent results.
but also: have you set the microadjustment settings for this lens? you definitely have to do that if you intend to shoot f/1.4...
