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

The new mkII is sharper at all focal lengths and all f-stops! By sharper is meant best (micro)contrast and details. Especially at f/2.8 it is much sharper than the old one, but also at f/8 it is better. How much this is worth for you is another question.
