Nice lively discussion.  This lens really hits a nerve when brought up.

My thoughts are that version 1 and a new version II could live happily next to each other in Canon's lineup.  They could keep the current version as a great value "L" kit lens and have the updated version as a higher priced choice.  Canon does this a lot with other lenses already.

Yes, this a very useful lens.  I have been using it since the original 5D came out.  And yes, I have been out there shooting with it...  So those of you can come off your high mountain perch.

But when I do shoots with the 24-105 and the 70-200 side by side, the difference shows.  The lens does have nice color and contrast but compared to my 70-200 f4 IS the detail is not there along with distortion being a problem.

Anyway, My wishes are just wished but it would be nice to have this workhorse lens turned into an awesome workhorse lens.
