Sigma 24mm f1.8... two versions - which one is most recent?
Jan 28, 2012

I am looking into a Sigma 24mm f1.8 EX DG for my D700 and I noticed that there are two versions.

I understand optically they are probably the same (although one has the word "aspherical" on the lens - does this mean the other has no aspherical lenses?), but the focus rubber is different in texture: one version has very thin lines close to each other and the other has three rows of a different type of lines.

Does anyone know which type is the most recent? On the official website they show the second one, but my old Sigma 15-30mm has that same type of focus ring... so I'm not completely sure.
