I just ordered this lens from BH....will arrive this coming friday. Can't wait :o

Better than arriving on Monday!  :P

You will love this lens.  Take some time to get to know it.  I found that it needed a bit faster of a shutter speed than I expected to keep things sharp.  Crank up the shutter speed and enjoy.

Thanks for headup with shutter speed. With my kids, lowest shooting is 1/125. 1000-2000 when they start running etc ;)

thanks for the reply guys.
it's going back saturday as the zoom ring is definitely not sounding right. as I said before it's not that its a loud mechanical sound but rather like some static friction on something like the weather sealing or something. really weird as sometimes it sounded like it was going away and then the next second it was doing it again. never had anything like it with my other lenses. oh well it's going back for replacement. seller wasn't too happy as it's the second copy i've tried from them. both with seperate issues. maybe i'm just unlucky  :(

I would careless what seller has to say or think. It's your money, make sure you get a good copy - that just me of course 8)

I'm not an expert in shooting "aircraft and auto-racing photography", but when my kids start running at the beach or chasing balls, I have hard time using center AF. Therefore, shooting with 4-8pts expansion mode, case 2 on my 5D III is quite easy.

If you bought the lens new, then ask for another copy. DO NOT return to Canon for repair. $2300 is alot of money - to me of course.

I just checked my 24-70 II, there is no "cracking sound" on my copy. The lens is almost dead silent in my office with door closed.

Edit: my 70-200 f2.8 IS II doesn't have "crackling sound" with IS on, in quite office.

Edit: My copy was little stiff when I first received.

As an owner of both lenses, 24-70 seems to be a better choice for general shooting. 70-200 might not be wide enough indoor. I would go 24-70 first then add 135L for longer end if budget allows. I tried this lens and I like what I see. It's smaller, lighter, and 1stop faster than 70-200. Sharpness is amazing.

Auto ISO @ all times. Still, I would keep an eye on it and try to stay below ISO6400.

Keep in mind 7D was designed for speed, not so much high ISO. I can see 7D II might have 61pts AF like 5D III and an increase in frame rate(maybe 10-fps). BUT NOT IN HIGH ISO or LOW LIGHT like 5D III, regardless what the new sensor might be.

Just the opposite, IMO.
It's much more likely that we'll see a big step up in image quality than a big step in features.
See my previous post.

Canon will not put 7D II in near 5D III  in term of high ISO/LOW LIGHT. 5D III is only 1yr old plus, it still have another 3-4yrs more before we seeing any rumors 5D 4.

I disagree.

The 5DIII needs to differentiate itself much better from both the 6D and the 7DII.
And the only way it can do that is by getting a high-quality ~30MP sensor.

So, I'm actually expecting that the 5DIII will get a replacement sooner than many expect.
Maybe as early as the spring of 2015.

I'll put my 25cents on the line that 7D II will not out perform 5D III in high ISO/low light.

Even Fuji & Sony are not capable to have their crop sensor out performs 5D III FF sensor yet.

If the 7D MKII will have a crop sensor, I do not understand how the camera will have as good of high ISO performance as the full frame 5D MKIII. 

The 5DIII is made on Canon's current CMOS manufacturing process - which is quite ancient and is well overdue for replacement.

The hope is that the 7DII sensor will be manufactured on a new manufacturing process.

If that's the case, the 7DII sensor will likely perform the same (or even better) than the 5DIII sensor.
Of course Canon will eventually make FF sensors on the new manufacturing process and FF will again pull ahead in performance.

If that is the case, what do you think happen to current 5D III? You think Canon going to let that happen?

A new technology has to be introduced somewhere. Since sales of lower end cameras far exceed that of higher end cameras, it would make sense that a new technology gets introduced into the lower end cameras first.... like the 6D which has GPS, touchscreen, and a lower light central focus point than the 5D3...

It is almost certain that this new technology will outperform the old process.... by how much remains to be seen... perhaps even approaching the sensitivity of the 5D3. It is also almost certain that this new camera will outperform the 5D3 live-view focus....

What does this mean for the 5D3? Nothing! People who want FF are not going to trade in a 5D3 for a crop camera, just like those who wish a crop camera are not going to go FF.... there is a market for both. What it does mean is that a 5D4 will probably use this new technology and you can expect the 5D4 to be better than the 5D3 like a 7D2 outperforms a 7D.

Keep in mind 7D was designed for speed, not so much high ISO. I can see 7D II might have 61pts AF like 5D III and an increase in frame rate(maybe 10-fps). BUT NOT IN HIGH ISO or LOW LIGHT like 5D III, regardless what the new sensor might be.

Canon will not put 7D II in near 5D III  in term of high ISO/LOW LIGHT. 5D III is only 1yr old plus, it still have another 3-4yrs more before we seeing any rumors 5D 4.

Keep in mind, the original debate was high ISO - not DR or others features etc....

Love this lens ... straight out of the camera - no processing.

Nice shot JR ;)

I just ordered this lens from BH....will arrive this coming friday. Can't wait :o

Good choice. This is a great lens.

I wish 85L II has similar AF speed as 50L or 135L, then I could have completed my dream set ::)

What happen to your 70-200 f2.8 IS II? I thought you use to have this lens?

No comment on Zeiss.

As Neuro mentioned, 85L II AF is on the slow site. This lens will give very high quality images. I tried this lens on my 5D III a week ago, but decided not to buy at this moment. I ended up with 135L. Will pair it up with my 50L.

Not sleeve, but this sling bag is so small. I start using it more than my RS7.

Does anyone think the speculation of the 7D MKII high ISO performance is based on the in camera jpeg processing, or are they actually talking about the RAW files?

Thanks

That will never happen.  WHY? - You can't hold 1 gallon of water in 1/2 gallon bucket.
