Congrats on your new lens, Jay.
It really takes guts to sell a 400 v1 and 600 v1 for a 400 v2.
Glad to hear you are enjoying it.
You did, however, say something that surprised me.
You said that the new lens is "noticeably sharper edge-to-edge than the previous version".
Noticeably is a strong word, specially considering the previous lens was already incredibly sharp and, well, I was under the assumption that the improvements were in weight, handling, IS and AF, not much in terms of IQ. I guess a little improvement (perhaps more with TC) could be somewhat expected, but not a considerable one.
Could you please elaborate a little on that?
Perhaps I used too strong a word, especially given the ridiculous cost delta. I've shot thousands of images with a 400 IS I and was never disappointed. I've certainly not done any exhaustive side-by-side scientific testing to validate my assertion.
If you have used a 70-200 IS I and II, the improvement to my eye at least is similar.
