They do use the same lens i think but the 125's door is much slimmer too

The vents on the power door, the latch being a thumb latch rather than a hook-bail latch and the presence of the slipfitter bolts sticking out of the top. The photocontrol is also moved back while the A2 has no vents on the power module and there is no bolts on the top and the photocontrol is moved forward.

 @ Burrito :  The M400A2 does indeed have vents on the powerdoor ! I have 2 of them (1986 & 1990 )  The A2 also has a street side mounted socket , A latch on the powerdoor along with the holdown screw and the slipfitter is different .  Plus , the late A2's don't have the "body line" on the upper housing that the M-400 has had since the beginning .

Another street light I got confused with was the AEL-125 and the GE M400R3. I later found out that the difference was simply the latch and the AEL was slimmer. I bet they used the same lens though.

The lenses are indeed interchangeable...the GE version is made by Ande Glass, while the AEL is made by Holophane.
