I know it's the best lens out there. I am ready to buy one. Don't want to buy one then new copy comes out next mouth

Unless Canon has an itch in its pants to give it the blue spectrum fairy dust, I don't see a revision happening any time soon. The v2 has only been around for about 5 years.

Just get it and enjoy this beauty. It's as sharp as they come :)

It's heavy and expensive. Other than that, it's perfect. I don't think Canon can, or want to fix those...

Buy it now, it wont stop being heavy and sharp even if a MK3 were to come out, which is unlikely.

Everytime I use this lens, just blown away how silly easy it makes image taking!
