I think the optical performance specs will be a significant improvement. What would be the point of a new version if it weren't? Just saying.
My copy of v1 is quite sharp. I doubt the new one will be significantly sharper (perhaps I have a particularly good copy). What it will have is greatly improved IS, lens coatings and (hopefully) weather resistance. The slotted hood for filters is also intriguing. Though I'm not particularly interested in upgrading, I will keep an open mind.
My lens is quite good and others have noticed the fact. I think it's more about techniques and lighting. This is at f6.3 ISO 200 on a 5D III (click on the photo for a larger size)

Wow! Fantastic shot Keith
WOW...this whole thread has turned into Stephen Sondheim's song: "Send in the Clowns"...well maybe they're here.....
I think Neuro had a similar experience
Sort of...but at the start of that experience, I was the guy using the iPhone, having it explained to me by the guy with the Rebel body and 55-250 that I needed a 'real camera' to have any hope of a good picture (of course, that was before I pulled the 1D X + 70-200 II out of the bag at my feet).
Hmmm.. i can´t trust in your words - the guy ( nda ) told us HE used the 1DX - and i did not see any Bag at your feet - so somebody does not tell the Truth ?
I was referring to an incident from a couple of years ago.
He was joking...
I am so confused....
In this post http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=23181.msg451635#msg451635 you don't mention having a 1d although you do mention having just about everything else???
Maybe you just picked it up in the last 13 days...
Anyways, you are what scares me about photography. People with your attitude, are what STOP people from grabbing their gear and heading out to capture the things around them.
And do you feel sufficiently superiour now?
Why do you care what other people use? If he is happy with the Ipad, great.
You sold your 6D and L lenses for 1/3 or so of a stop?QuoteThe D750 isn't any better then the 5D3 at high ISO.Actually, it is at least 2/3 of a stop better. I sold my 6D and several L lens, about 2 weeks ago, and purchased the D750. The D750 is cleaner at high ISO's than my former 6D was, by at least 1/3 or so of a stop. I can push high ISO images much better with the D750 than I could with the 6D.
Still trying to figure out which Nikon lens are worth a crap, most of the Nikon primes are slower to focus than the Canon counterparts.
And now you are trying to fgure out which of the slower focusing Nikon lenses are at least worth a crap?
