Re: Speaking of, I see a brand new MKII right now at that price on CL

The twin kit lenses (IS) will outperform most film lenses in my experience. The older lenses don't sharpen up until f8 and are rubbish wide open. i have had several and they are only any good in bright sun or in the studio. The kit lens are sharp from their widest setting.
