Good thing that Canon is doing this.
On the other hand.....what is going on with the Quality Assurance at Canon?
I wouldn't necessarily call it a quality assurance issue. Canon has just developed a brand new 61pt AF system and drive in their new pro bodies that has some advanced capabilities not previously used. Seeing as all of these lenses were designed and announced well before the 1D X was even announced, let alone released, its not surprising they have an update to these lenses that would fully support their new AF system.
The sailing was really relaxed - no one seemed to bothered by my camera bag and measuring the lengths of the lenses. As I only had a feeble 70-200 and was up on the hill there wasn't much of a chance to get good sports photos so it was all about the audience shots for me. Really great atmosphere and wonderful event.
Little gallery here:
I'd rather have & wait on one of these:

Wild guess: Those lenses (the ones in the background also appear to be 200-400's) are in London waiting for CPS sports photographers to borrow or buy them.

The extra size & weight of the f/2.8 IS USM mk II are noticeable by my muscle, as well as people around, including a few who just approached me and asked which TV station I'm working for.
Some of my better ones:

It looks like a stop to me over 3200 ISO. Under that its very similar but thats amazing. The grain also looks better on the 1Dx.
I never noticed until I read this but comparing IE and Chrome side by side it is obvious.
