So what's the difference between this lens and the 70-200 f2.8 mark 3 that I have? Why would I want to own one?

In a nutshell... Image compression at f/1.8 at 200mm... It's something to behold... And unless you've physically seen it first hand, the comparison is unique... Don't get me wrong, the 7-2L IS is a wonderful piece of glass... Hell, I still have/use the Mark 1 version... But when it comes to having a bit more IQ, that extra 1-stop hard to beat...

:)

Thanks, it seems to be a good bargain on the used market.
