how much lighter is it?
It's 1,520g lighter.
Wow, okay can someone please post the weight of the original and the new version? I can't search for it at the moment. 3.3lbs lighter seems like quite a bit, as if they just removed the weight of a 1DmkIII and an 85 1.8 off the end of it correct
Version 2 (3,850g)
Version 1 (5,370g)
To put it in perspective that's almost the weight of the 2010 Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM (1490g)
Damn! No wonder why it's 11.5K. Thanks for the info.
I am unsure if you are being sarcastic or not but the sports photogs I know are looking forward to upgrade as this means for the same gear set they will carry less weight on the plane and to various venues. Looking at this another way iit also means you can bring more gear without going overweight.
$11500 will drop after August.
