    I am thinking about buying a Sigma 60mm lens for my Olympus OM-D E-M10. The online test data, the image samples, and the product price all look good to me. I see that there are two versions of this lens: a DN which came out first and a DN A which is the current offering. Is there any difference in the optical performance or AF speeds between these two lenses?

    Thanks!

    The 60mm actually only comes in the later version. The 19 and 30mm came in both versions. Optically and AF wise the versions are identical, it was just a style change (and removal of a real MF ring).

    The first two here show the style differences. Metallic and shiny, vs rubbery with a normal grip on the focus ring. http://www.sigmaphoto.com/search/30mm

    Again, the 60mm only comes in the later shiny style.
