Lens database for SDM failure...

Is there someplace I can lookup by serial number whether a lens I am about to buy is 'old' stock or new stock? And approximately WHEN (what #) did the SDM failures finally stop?

Thanks,
Cameron

Take a look at our serial database:
Pentax Serial Number Database - PentaxForums.com

Lenses (the DA* 16-50mm & 50-135mm) made in the second half of 2012 or later are rumored to have had the SDM issue fixed.
