Is this just a typo?
As I bought something at TigerDirect, I checked some of the lenses and saw this:
Canon 1257B002 EF 50mm f1.2L II USM Standard Lens
Item#: YYI1-T37393 | Model#: 1257B002AA

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4966512&csid=_61

http://www.goelectronic.com/CANON+1257B002AA.html

Curiously I check B&H for Model # and here it is:
Normal EF 50mm f/1.2L USM Autofocus Lens
B&H # CA5012LEF Mfr # 1257B002

From Canon USA: Item Code: 1257B002

That's gotta be wrong - while I hope for a mk2, I'd expect to pay twice as much for one

Nope. A verson II would be big news.

Almost certainly true, my 50L just arrived yesterday so of course the mkII would be announced

Well the image doesnt show a 'II' on the front ring so, either it's a typo or it is a new lens but they haven't got the correct image. I'm going with the former

It's gotta be wrong. Why? Lenses normally got announced before availability. In Canon case, the announcement happens months or years before they become available.

Canon likes to launch all their lenses with tigerdirect.

Maybe a "II" at tiger direct simply means they have 2 in stock...

Ben, MKII is the one that passed final QA test then again, recertified by Canon service senter whenever user send it in.

BTW, congratulation on your new MKI

My MKII hand held samples: f8 in full size and 100% border crop plus wide open






















MKII = Center focus shift vaccination

I'd vouch for that comment; my 50L travelled to Canon three times (out of warranty) but the third time it came back, the thing was a damned gem of a lens.

Then, it was stolen :\
It now lives in somewhere in Russia, probably churning out first-rate images of second-rate mistresses of third-rate Russian oil oligarchs.

(I apologize in advance to Snopchenko and World in Lens for the stereotypes)

I think i must be somewhat lucky! I ordered my 50L from Adorama about 18 months ago, it arrived and it was perfect out the box...
