Would it be worth it so spend a few hundred more dollars to get the V2 of this lens? Doesn't seem like much of an upgrade so I'm curious to see if its still just a better value to get the V1.

What do you guys think?

I was looking forward to the v2 and all set to upgrade, but as you say, it's not much of an upgrade, so I changed my mind and bought a 16-35 f/4 L instead. But in your shoes, I'd probably go for the v2, as the v1 is getting a bit long in the tooth. Something else might break!

By the way, mine cost $413.89 Canadian to be repaired in Ottawa in 2016.
