dyxum note
The difference between original and this restyled lens are: Rubber focusing grip. ABS plastic focusing barrel. Foot/Meter focus scale in all white paint.
On the RS version focus ring moves 90 degrees whereas on the older version it moves about 120 degrees (likely a reason why some of the focus distances are missed out on the RS version). This may result in faster AF than the older version
