Ha. I'll try that one. Need to upgrade to fully leverage compatibility with my other 82mm lenses/hoods/filters :-)

You have to get this. No question. Any fraction of a reason is a good reason. My good reason is that my wife just bought a $2800 Gucci purse.

So now I have to have the MkII so I can take a picture of it with my pre-ordered 5D3 so she will know what it looked like when it was (relatively) new.

To take the picture with the 7d and current 24-70 would be blasphemous.

Not that she wants a picture of it, but it would be irresponsible of me not to take one. You know. Just in case.

Stretch. A better reason would be that you want a 24-70 but can't stand how bad the original is and have to pay Canon's premium (highway robbery) for the MkII version.

Buy it if you want it. If the IQ is as good as advertised (MTFs and such) then I will be making a purchase.

consumption does not need justification.

bw!

Personally, I can't see how a 24-70/2.8 can be priced at nadits the same as a ZE 2/25 and a ZE 2/50 MP... both of which are among the finest glass available in their focal lengths... but that's just my $0.02.


Several cameras and more glass than I will admit to.

By getting a 24-70L II, I will get an 82mm thread size hood that fits on the 16-35 II when I use it on the 1D4.

The 24-70 II hood will undoubtedly be way too deep for the 16-35 and will vignette strongly at 16mm. The fact that you are using a 1D body means the 1.3 crop will help a bit with vignetting.
