Just found I've found another version of Quran readings called Qaroon Quran which have quite different Arabic readings like "marfiqaa" vs "mirfaqaa" (in Al-Kahf:16). Are they legit as well?

  • Qalun was after the sahaba maybe the third imam of the masjid nabawy in Medina. He mastered the qira'a of medina.

There are a number of readings of the Qur'an that are considered acceptable (see also: What are the readings (qira'at) of Quran?); the Qalun reading is one of them although it is not particularly common compared to the Hafs reading (which is pretty much universal).
