A very simple question

I ordered the:

SMCP-FA 35mm f/2.0 AL

1. What does the "P" in SMCP mean?

2. What does the "AL" mean?

Some of the stores listed this lens without the P in SMC* - any difference?

Thanks

AL means that Al, who incidentally works at the place you ordered it from, approves of the lens.
