Psychic1: Kindly expound. AF was messing up?
A long time ago my wife learned never to ask
While waiting for the Generation II's to start shipping Canon CPS was kind enough to loan me the 400L IS 2.8, the 400DO, the 500L twice, the 600L IS II and the 800L twice.
Every lens was well worn and every lens functioned perfectly. All were tack sharp.
This summer I tested the 500L II and I found it as sharp as the old and completely hand-holdable.
Unfortunately, is would stop focusing. Clicking from M to AF would often cause it to reengage.
The 600L II on a tripod, servo OFF, single shot, center point with 1DsIII and 1DIII was erratic and with the 2XIII attached it hunted like a dead dog.
I have decided on the 500L II and the 800L because I never met a 2X I like.
I do not believe the new Gen II ultra-lite lens will stand the test of time.
Shoot me, my wife won't mind
