To further clarify...

...What I mean is:

I loved my 70-200 f/2.8 IS lens. It had its limitations. Canon came up with the improved II version. It still has some limitations but is it is a massive improvement over the I version (...probably the same vast improvement you're referring to, in the 24-70 case).

...but Canon only pushed the price by about 30-35% from one version to the next.

Why then now the 70-75% increase in this offer?

It would be understandable if it was a "perfect" lens but, arguably, it isn't.

That's what I am getting at...that and the fear the it will become common practice, affecting future offers, offers that I might actually be interested in.
