So for anyone who's used the 70-200II, I think it's safe to say it is SHARP wide open. I rented a copy a few months ago and was blown away at the sharpness on both FF and crop. That being said, if they ever made a version III, what would they actually do to improve on it?! Sharpness is already there, it's quick, got great IS, etc. Weight? Even more stops of IS?

I'm just generally curious.

Canon would improve their profit margin by charging $3500. :D

I think you hit it right on the nose. Maybe they could make it a little whiter..

Focus breathing, Bokeh, distortion, minimum focus distance, weight etc.

There are more things than just sharpness, but it is a stunning lens.

Using a curved sensor, such as Sony are developing would mean they can change many things. ;)
