The II is slightly better. The I has been discontinued. The 3rd version is the one with VR. There are some minor optical differences between the 3 lenses.

The 1st version is the kit lens for the D50, version II is kit lens for D40/x.

There were some optic quality issues with the 1st version, particularly with the inner tube. Version II addressed the issue.

You can compare the lens tests from photozone:
