    Phase One AF 45mm 2.8 "D" or no "D"

    I'm have the possibility to buy a used Phase One AF 45mm 2.8 for a decent price.

    Anyone know if Phase One has made more than one version of this lens?
    I keep seeing comments of a "D" version but can't find any pictures that show's a D on the lens barrel. Maybe the Phase One is simply D without stating it?

    I'm aware of the older Mamiya version but this is the Phase One version with the updated design..

    Thanks
    Peter

    I hadn't heared anything about and can't find anything in media about a new version after overtaking Mamiya.
    So I would say Phase One AF is the same as Mamiya AF-D.

    You are confused about the versions.

    They are like this:
    1. Mamiya 45mm AF
    2. Mamiya 45mm AF D
    3. Phase One 45mm

    Version 3 is the best one, and very close to 2.
    1 is not as good.

    At one time I had both the Mamiya versions and was able to compare them. The D version was markedly superior - I still have it and love it.
