But then in upper left corner of the "Quality control” page in the manuals you can see interesting artifact, stamp saying "Rechecked on 23-rd of November 2004" Manuals also said that warranty period for storage is 3 years. Probably Arsenal could not sell this lens for more then 3 years and has to open it and recheck to be able to keep lens on the shelf. Remember that serial number on the lens is only 8428, minuscule by previous standards. This show straggle of the company to compete on the World photo market after dismantles of Soviet Union.
