Default Input Stage Question

Hi, I have a question:

Is there a real difference between the input stage A and B?

Input Stage A - from Randy Slone

Yes there is a difference, input stage of randy sloan does not work. The vas bias current is not defined and causes output offset to be unstable. The more recent sloan design has changed the current mirror ltp to cascodes which works. Do a search here, of randy sloan, you will find many info about this.
