Sigma 28/2.8 mini-wide maco: I vs II?

Trying to find differences between two versions of this lens? Can anyone help? What was changed in version II?

I heard this lens is quite good and I have a chance to buy version I. Has it "A" position on the aperture ring?

I've never owned the I version, so I have no idea whether it's the same optical design as the II or not. The build seems similar. I would ask for photos before purchasing and make sure it has the 'A' setting on the mount.

I just received the answer, lens is full manual, no A setting :-(

Yeah, version I does not have the A setting. It's a nice little lens though.

Ok, something more interesting. Both lenses are Sigma 28/2.8 mini-wide II macro for Pentax.
They have exactly the same witten on the front... but they look different. Why?
Is the optics the same?
