I'm on 50K actuations, been with me over a year, never got issues and mine seems affected going on serial number and lack of markings...
You've had the 1Dx since before June of last year?
Currently I use the Lee Filter Holder 150 x 150 for the Nikon 14-24f/2.8 on my Canon Bodies, I imagine Canon are not going to be able to do a heap with that front element that Nikon weren't able to do, so I guess if/when Canon drop a 14-24 onto the Market, you'll need to look at after Market adaptors like the Lee 150 X 150 System, it works just fine on the nikon 14-24 but the system & filters are somewhat dedicated to just this Lens, so it becomes an expensive solve to the problem.
I also have the Canon TSE 17 which has a similar issue with the front element (Huge), and no one makes an adaptor, that I am aware of, for this lens, which is a Bummer, best fix I've seen to date is a Modification to a spare Lens Cover for the 17mm adapted & converted to take the 100 x 150 "Normal" Lee Filter set up, I've not tried it though, may give it a go as I'de like to use my Grads on this Lens, the 24 TSE isn't an issue, Lee have a step Ring @ 82mm that allows it fit the normal 100 x 150 Lee System to the 24 TSE & 24-70f/2.8 II.
The Link shows the mod for the 17TSE if anyone's interested.
Debating to replace my 24-105 for a 24-70 II for improved IQ reasons. Still on the fence whether I'll do this.
I debated that same issue. Now I'm debating whether to sell the 24-105L, as I haven't used it since getting the 24-70L II.
See now I have a dilemma...I have been saving my money to purchase the 400mm 2.8 for the past couple of years and I'm about $1500 off from paying straight cash for it. I am planning to have it by the time fall rolls around for some high school football action. Now with this lens finally becoming a reality I wonder should I just go ahead go for this or just go ahead and pull the trigger on the 400 since I've been saving for it for so long...Unless you will need less than 400mm I cannot see why you must change plans.
400 2.8 L IS II weighs the same as the 200-400 and is one stop better...
Here is a comparison of the 200-400 mtfs at 400mm and 560mm with the f/2.8 300mm II + 1.4x TC at 420 mm, and the f/2.8 400mm II prime, and then the 200-400mm at 560mm with TC, the 300mm at 600mm with 2xTC, and the 400mm prime with 1.4x TC. I'll stick with the 300mm + TCs as the 200-400 is too heavy for me as well as too pricey. All these lenses seriously outgun the 100-400mm f/5.6, and you see it quite easily in the resolution of detail when you compare them in practice.
