Is the new Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II worth $1300 more than a good used mark I?

Looking at buying a Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L...  new II for $2300, or a used mark I for about $1000....  Looks like reduced chromatic aberations are the main upgrade?  Was that really a big issue in the first version?

Thanks
