EF 400mm f/2.8 ii price drop
1

I was planning on getting the iii at some point this year, as the $2k difference between the iii and the ii still got you significantly lighter weight and better stabilization.  But, now that the ii has dropped to $8k, that makes a $4k difference between the ii and the iii.  That's a lot of cheddar.  Now I'm thinking pretty hard about getting the ii and using the savings for something else.  I would be shooting on a monopod almost exclusively.  Anyone think the iii is still $4k better than the lower priced ii?
