Outstanding lens - but not worth it as an upgrade

  • Summary: I have had my new EF 300mm f/2.8 IS L ii for six months now. This review will focus on a specific question; should current owners of the EF 300mm f/2.8 IS L "upgrade" to the mark ii version? The short answer is "no". But there are other reasons than "upgrading" to consider, and a special case for those who shoot film. So read on. Picture Quality Stunning. But not anymore than its predecessor. Frankly, you would be hard pressed to see the difference. It's there.
