I used this lens for about 4 days and it is stellar. The improvements over the MK I are leaps and bounds including where it matters most-image quality. The MK II delivers crisp colors, contrast and, under correct conditions, a nice 3D like pop. I needed some extra gear for a wedding and the MK II and the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 were rented and the MK II was my preferred lens for the day. There was no focal length where it did not perform and it rocks wide open. One of the most notable improvements over the MK I, at least for me, is corner sharpness. In the past, when placing a wedding party across the frame, the MK I was soft at the corners (even stopped down) but the MK II suffers no such issues. The overall feel of the lens is also better-no longer clunky when zooming or that "bottoming out" feeling when zooming to 24mm. My lens lineup is decent and includes plenty of L glass and this MK II will make its way into my bag. It really is a joy to use and worth every penny. If you can't buy it, rent it often :) Rudy
