Re: EF 70-300mm f4-5.6 is USM II

I love it, too! One of the best non-L lenses I've used, and, really, gives L glass image quality and focusing speed.

I actually came here today, to ask about this lens, vs. the original version, which I never fell in love with. I was browsing B&H, and noticed that the original is STILL available, new. On top of that surprise, is that it's selling for $200 MORE than the Mk II Nano version 70-300mm IS USM. $650 vs $450.

Why?! I really gots to know. And, it seems a particularly difficult question to Google up an answer to.
