Lens Rental statistics show...

...that my hunch was right: There is variation between perfectly usable lenses and those that are clearly problematic can be fixed by professional overhaul.

the within-group comparison of 24-70 mk I lenses here: variation of the mk I lenses

And the intergroup comparison between the mk I and the mk II lenses here  .
Statistically, you'll get a better lens buying the mk II, for sure.
Is the difference worth the price is another question.

So glad I got mine fixed!
