    Nice, it looks as though it has many of the same improvements as the recent Nikon 70-200/2.8 upgrade.

    Someone appears to have already posted about this before I did. Sorry about that.

    It seems when Canon adds a couple of "I"s to a name, each "I" comes to at least 2.5-400 bucks

    Looking at the charts, it isn't that much better on paper. Very curious to see if there's really any visual difference. I think the only real selling point they'll have is MFD and possibly focus speed improvement.

    It could be a choice for people looking to pick up a 70-200mm L to begin with, but I don't see many people going from the original to the II.
