Does the lens have a date code? It is two letters followed by four numbers. They're usually inside the metal mount on the black rearward surface.

 

I believe that lens was manufactured between 1993 and 2002 so the second letter of the date code would be from H through Q indicating which year it was made. The first two numbers are the month.
