Optical Formula of DA 50-200 ED vs DA WR 50-200 Lenses?

Is the optical formula the same between the DA 50-200 ED lens (metal mount, 52 mm filter) and the current WR version? Is there any substantial or meaningful diffference between the two lenses other than weather resistance and filter size?

Thanks.

So are they different optical formulae?

Thanks.

No, they're the exact same.

I believe he said that the answer is no to both your questions. Though I find that strange. I would have expected yes to the first question and no to the second.

Edit: Adam beat me to it!
