Canon EF 500mm f/4L IS II USM

5004II
Review Date: Aug 16, 2013 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $8,500.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Lighter than the old version, easier to hand hold for BIF. Sharper than the old version.
Cons:
I did not like the lens foot, replaced it with a NatureScape.Net Lens Replacement Foot. (NSN CLF-456) which has lower profile and is lighter.

I owned the Mark I version of this lens for almost seven years.
My goal with the replacement was to have a lighter version of the same lens.
One and a half pounds lighter weight doesn't sound a lot but in fact when it comes to hand holding it is a lot.
I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a lighter big glass.
