Count its rings like on a tree? Look in its mouth, like you would a horse?
Or just google and see what you can find. Maybe about 6-8 years old is my guess.
Still being made perhaps?

The start serial number was 2005497 in Jan 04, so you'll can take a guess from the serial number on your lens.
A friend of mine bought one new about four weeks ago.
