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

Also, used with a 5D3/1DX the AF is insane. I've gotten like 100 shots in a row with perfect focus at f/2.8 with the 24-70 II and the new AF system in those bodies. Never had that with any other combo before at f/2.8.

Center frame, a better copy, is crazy sharp f/2.8 70mm (edges not so much in that case, but whatever).

24mm at f/8 is pretty much matches the 24 1.4 II for landscapes something the older zooms absolutely did not do and it even has even less LoCA than the 24 1.4 II at 24mm and vastly less than the 24-105.
