Are all of Sigma's 50mm 1.4 the new finish if ordered now?

I just placed an order for the Sigma 50mm 1.4 and I'm just reading on how the old finish tends to peel and retains finger marks and such, whereas the newer finish is smooth plastic. I also read they mix and match the focus and lens hood so half is smooth, half is the grainy sparkle, which looks stupid to me. Anyone out there that ordered this lens recently get stuck with the old finish? I ordered from B&H, and I'm wondering if they would allow me to exchange if I had the old finish.

i'd be confident that you'd get the new finish

Thanks for the reply. I was worried I was going to get a mish mash of new/old finish. I saw some people getting the grainy lens hood, grainy focus ring, but smooth plastic throughout. Looked like some Frankenstein lens that I did not want to be getting. B&H and Sigma still has the old finish posted as the picture.

The next thing I'm worried about is I hope there is no AF issue, but I am feeling lucky.

A few days old, but my 24-70HSM was ordered from BH and the lens is the new finish, but the hood is the old finish. I don't really care though. :)
