I sure hope that this time they have something even remotely sharp at the long end ;) Otherwise I would not have been using 135L instead...

Dammit, why didn't they use transparent aluminum instead of glass ?!

I want to go to there.....

although I'm plenty happy with my MK I, I have issues with owning the latest and greatest....

the extra stop and min. focus distance is what grabs my attention.

now let's hope they announce a 24-70 MKII
