XC 50-230, version I vs II: differences?
2

I'm considering the XC 50-230 for the occasional distant subject (considering how often I would use it, the 55-200 seems too heavy and too expensive)

Locally, I encounter some very friendly priced 50-203, version-I of the lens (around 100-150 euro)

A new version II can be found in the 350-400 range. (2nd hand nothing with competitive pricing currently.)

What are the differences in features/capabilities between the 2 versions of the XC 50-230? Are they worth 200 euro to you,or not, and why?
