I can't say if it's my best, but I would say it's one of them. It's certainly one I have always enjoyed.

Just pick up the non-IS version. It goes for $1200 right now. It's also arguably sharper than the II.
Supertelephotos take similar filters.
Good point, but I thought they had glass. I am borrowing the 200 F2.0L and it has a special filterholder that you can replace. I just assimed that that was glass or resin.
There ya go, it looks like the 35 is indeed crushing the 30. I know charts aren't everything, but it's a large enough of a difference to make that conclusion.
Please help me understand why people are excited about 6D? I cannot be excited about 97% VF, 1 x-pt AF, crippled 6D with wifi and facebook buttons. I will stick to a 5-year-old beloved 5D Mark II which is identical in IQ to Canon's newest sensors. Canon, you are not getting a dime of my money on your recent cameras. I have diversified my lenses so am not hostage to inferior sensors anymore.
For what it's worth, Canon still used the old system until at least August of this year. I know as I took delivery recently of an 'L' lens with the date code "UA08xx" which is August, 2012.
It depends. New lens models seem to have done away with date codes, while existing models still have them. apparently, Canon is not going to spend money to convert existing lens models to the new system, it will happen by attrition. The 70-200mm f/2.8L MK II was the first over two years ago.
