Re: 70-200 2.8 version 1 vs version 2

I just purchased a 70-200 f2.8 IS USM version 1 lens in prestine condition for $1100 - guy wanted $1500.

I can vouch for how sharp the version 1 lens is and how well it performs. I don't think I'd spend another grand for the version 2. Use that for another lens.
Canon 50d gripped, 70-200 f2.8L IS USM, 50mm f1.8, 18-55 f3.5-5.6, 430ex II.
