Sigma 70-200 f2.8 EX DG APO HSM Macro VS Macro II - Opinions please!

How do the two "Macro" versions of this Sigma lens compare? I've heard that the II is supposed to have improved optics according to Sigma, but I've heard there are reports from users that the first of the two is actually better optically. Has anyone tried both, or found a credible source or side-by-side comparisons they can link to? If there is little to no difference between them I can pick up the first model today in good condition.
