That's dependent on performance

To answer the question "Do you think its value will tank...", its very possible. Possibly more than any Canon lenses have ever dropped before. But... that is based on them being significantly better than the current version II lenses. If we get similar performance with just a small weight loss, I think their value will hold quite well. Drop, yes by a little, but hold relatively well.

For example, if the 600L III performance is what we have to expect, I'll keep my 500L II and suspect many more will do the same. This would be a case where there are pluses and minuses compared to the previous generation and a big price tag to boot. So I'd assume adoption will be more tepid, allowing for better values on older lenses.
