Question about Panasonic 14-140mm versions

I have looked at many different photos and there seem to be at least 3 different versions for the 14-140mm f3.5/5.6 lens.

The first version has red HD under the 14-140 mark on the side of the lens.

The second version doesn't have this but instead has the 0.3m/ft to infinity markings under 14-140 on the side of the lens. In small white letters HD is indicated under the model number H-FS14140.

The third most recent has model number H-FSA14140 and the small white HD is next to the four thirds symbol. This is hopefully the weather sealed version.

Do people know which is sharpest or best?

Hard to tell with unreported versions and reviews.

Does any one know if this lens is good in infrared?

Or is the 12-60mm f3.5/5.6 better for infrared?

Thanks,

David
