I remember there was something to improve the AF, which ain't bad in the number 
one.

I don't believe there is any difference but external color. The original came 
in one color fits all gray. The Mk II 
comes in black or silver, to match the bodies. 

I did a fair amount of looking a while ago, and could find no indication of any 
other change. Quite a lot of folks liked 
the lens, but wanted faster AF, so there was some noise when the MK II came 
out.
