Superb Lens
3

I recently bumped from the 300mm 2.8 I to the II and am very happy with the upgrade. The I version is an amazing lens, probably one of the all time great telephotos - but the II is noticeably better. I'm not a gearhead so can't refer to charts or numbers, just my intuitive field experience with the glass. The improved image stabilization system allows for low light, hand held miracles and the focus, already razor sharp from the I, is just extraordinary. The catch is that this is still a 300mm; not a lot of power for the nature photography I do. But when I can get close to subjects - watch out!
