Questions regarding Nikon 16mm 3.5 ai

I have a question or two regarding the Nikon 16mm 3.5 ai lenses. There is a particular version of this lens which is extremely sharp and creates very pleasant sunstars. I believe it is the version made from 1977-1979 with serial #s of 290010-291566. But there is another version which was made from 1975-1977. This one is also listed as an ai lens, but is also designated as a "K" lens (?). This K version has serial numbers of 280001-281597. Which of these versions is the one with great resolution and nice sunstars? Or, are both these versions optically the same? Also, will both versions of these lenses fit on a D750 and a Sony A7rii (with an adapter) without any lens modifications? Thanks for your assistance.

Nikon D750
