It's the MkI, not MkII. That's a reasonable price.

Thanks. Are the I and II versions different?

Neither version of the 16-35 is really considered to be a really great ultrawide, but the II is better than the I. It uses 82mm filters though, not 77 like the I.

77mm filter size is a boon if you've got a bunch of other stuff using that size already :) Most people would be pressed to see the difference in actual use without being told which is which
