The 50mm f/1.8 MkII model came out in 1990 I think... The 50mm f/1.8 MkI was around 1987 or just before.

Even the 50mm f/1.4 is relatively old, came out in 1993.

I bought my 50mm 1.8 Mark I in 1993 or 1994 I think.
Still in perfect condition - always kept dry when not in use.
It was about the last piece in Singapore I recall.
Only TK Foto had a couple left.
Mark IIs were everywhere (not as well built)
