Question from a new Leicaphile: if I want to buy the latest version of a lens,
for instance, does the word "latest" honestly signify the most recent version.
Or should I be asking for the serial number and comparing it to some chart
which correlates serial numbers with production line?  If yes, how do you
determine by knowing the serial number what year or from what country the lens
was produced?
