    They are most likely the same lens - and both would be piss-poor. Cosina
    makes both and they are made to be low priced - not good, just cheap.
    Whatever brand of camera you use you would be better off buying a Tokina or
    Tamron lens if you cannot afford the camera manufacturer's lens. All you
    will get buying a Cosina lens is the fun of replacing it after finding out
    it is not doing anything for your photography except wasting your efforts.

  3. Are you speaking from personal experience? If the AF uses the same
    optics as the MF, then this lens will be very sharp. I can't speak to
    the AF mechanism build quality as I've only used the MF version.
