I dont see how they could improve much on the 35L, but i guess the could find some reason to call it mkII and double the price...

I will say that the current 35L is amazing. The first copy I had was not really sharp at wider than f2. My second one is pretty sharp even at f1.4.

I agree, the 35L is amazing. I have heard only rumors about a replacement and even if they turn into something, it would be over a year before it hit the shelves and as mentioned, would be double $. If you have a body that does MA, you will be happey with the 35L. Mine needs +5, but it is fabulous there.

I have never done any adjustments on any of my lenses og bodys....

Possibly MFA might have resolved the sharpness issue with your first 35/1.4L?
