it looks like the same lens but again the number is different and I didn't know enough about cameras and lens to know if the number means anything

the string of #s is just the serial #. If it says SMC-M 50mm f2, that is the lens. That page should give you a lot of info about it.

The lens should be very nice. I had one from new (kit lens with my MX) and it was a pleasure to use, and produced good results. It can be used with all K-mount cameras, including current dSLR. The knowledge for how to use it with the dSLRs is on this forum.
