You get prime-like 24mm and much better f/2.8 performance, likely better build quality, better AF on 5D3/1DX, the old one's development has been paid for and it was still on old release pricing scheme, new one is bumped up for inflation and to quickly cover new costs (most canon lenses seem a lot less expensive after ten years). And Canon does seem to have gone to a bit of a higher pricing model these days too, unfortunately, of course.
