The reason I'm asking is that the retailer promised me I would receive a model from a "new batch" with all AF problems eliminated, yet I have a camera which arrived with a Feb 2012 date set ... I'm wondering if they have been less than honest with me. I've already put a number of actuations on the camera since I didn't think to check when I received it. Is there any way to find out the manufacturing date ?

Thanks for the info guys
