Same lens??

Are these 2 the same lens? Description seems to indicate they may be different, but the database on the forum only lists one Tamron at this focal length. If they are different, what one is the better? One says XR, the other doesn't say, so I'm not sure.

TAMRON 17-50MM DI-II F2.8 PENTAX 104A16NII - Henry's best camera store in Canada

NEW TAMRON 17-50mm XR f/2.8 Di II LENS FOR PENTAX DSLR on eBay.ca (item 120703200852 end time 24-Apr-11 08:05:44 EDT)

I am 99% sure there is only one Tamron 17-50/2.8 lens.

Were they both available in a Pentax mount?

Thanks for the info. Looks like it should be OK to get either one then.
