The new version is way cheaper. Something must have been taken away, like some HR elements (the old one has three of them). I don't own the 75-300, but from what I have seen it is a quality optic with impressive sharpness, contrast and clarity. I hope the new one keeps up with it, though I doubt it.

It's the same

MkI

18 elements in 13 groups; Super ED, ED, HR elements

I suspect it's just market pressure.
