500 & 600 f/4.0 L IS USM II tested by DXO

a single test won't make a lot of sense but a series of tests from independent blogs and magazines is a different story.

To my best knowledge DXO is the first of them (witch ranking) to have tested them all.

(read the test here)

Really impressive pieces of engineering - just to share the results with you if you haven't seem them yet - DXO ranks the wide open performance most and specifies it in the so calls P-Mpix (=perceived magapixel) - which is an IMHO weird measure but should give you an idea of the wide open performance in comparison with different brands and cameras.
