Pretty impressive assuming the optics match those of the EF mk3.

I think it will exceed the EF mk3. It will have all the new coatings and the new design subtracts 5 elements. This theoretically should make the lens brighter, more contrasty, and less prone to flare.

I sincerely doubt it will not exceed the EF mk3 by a significant margin.

By this logic, they should simply go down to one element. Problem solved!  I don't pretend to understand the trade-offs of lens design but I don't think they throw in more elements than necessary for the fun of it.

I doubt that it will exceed the mk3 in any way other than weight and size. I may hope for improved transmission. Any beat on the mk3 is diminishing returns. There's so little room left for improvement.
