One may be the manual focus version and the other may be the autofocus version, but I think it's more likely that they are the same lens, but just listed differently.

Where did you see the listings for them? Can you provide links?

Is there a difference in price? That would indicate some difference in the lenses. If the price is the same, they may be the same lens.
