When did Canon switch to the new grey/black style lens boxing?

I was looking on the local Craigslist and noticed the same lenses with different boxing for sale and it got me thinking. I already knew the grey/black boxing is the recent of the two (white and red) but was curious if anyone knew when the change came about? I tried googling with no luck. 

Thanks.

 

I didn't find the right solution from the internet.

Canon switched to the new style grey/black style lens box in late 2013.

 

It might still be possible to find a new stock item in the old red/white/black boxes.

One of the many sad aspects of modern society is that people are paid big money to talk Canon and other companies into making superficial changes like that.
