I have this lens and it is superb.

I have the 70-200 IS II also and the 24-70 is the equivalent for the standard zoom range.

Yes it's expensive, but bottom line is it is the best 24-70 lens available anywhere at all focal lengths.

(The sole exception would be if you want to shoot video in which case you want the IS on the Tamron.)

Do you need this lens if you already have the mark 1? The only factor there is your budget. If you can't afford it, them you clearly won't buy it. If you can afford it and want to know if it's a great lens? Yes, yes it is.

I have v1 and had looked forward to this new verion. Even had it on pre-order. However, I have been put off by the multiple reviews about copy variation. Seems some things never change   So now I am on the fence again, hoping perhaps manufacturing/quality control will improve over time.
