    Nice shots... and I appreciate the fact they're totally unprocessed so there's nothing to distract from the pure results of the lens. I'd like to see a side by side comparison of the current lens and the new one, though.

    Sadly that is my view as well and that MK1 price is a bit high is it not (or is that the canon one of their website?). I would like the features it offers like better IS and a closer minimum focusing distance - plus overall improvements to the glass would be great for me since I use my current one with a teleconverter a lot of the time.

    However at £1300 difference - plus more because my 70-200 would not sell at new price when sold second hand - its just way too much to upgrade to.

    If it were say £2000 it would at least be a more real starting price to consider!

    Lets wait until we see the street prices. MSRP is high. I believe the MK1 was $2000 MSRP when it came out.

    Is there a release date on this? I can't seem to find it on online retailers.

    Edit: nm... Canon site says April 2010. I remember it used to say Feb 2010 =/
