[*Update, thanks guys for your answers, case closed*]

Just bought a lens online. It was advertised as MkII. But after paying, I noticed that the lens hood is ET-86, not ET-87 which is the hood for the MKII.

Can someone who knows the difference identify if this is a MKI or MKII?? If its a MKI I'll need to get back to the seller. I only have 1 photo.

thanks

Its definitely mark I. The mark II's focus ring is slightly wider.

Agree @sheedoe. Lens is turned so you can't see the "II" on the silver band at far left.

Rapidly swap between two tabs in a browser on these pages to see the wider rubber focus ring on the II:

Sorry 00Q, this does look like a mark I.  On the silver circle at the top where it is written 70-200mm if it is a mark II it would be marked as such.  Just checked on mine.

Good luck resolving with your seller...regards,

Apart from the hood, that should be of type "ET-87", the silver ring near the lens should say "Canon Zoom Lens EF 70-200mm 1:2.8 L IS II USM"...

Cheers,
Mark.

Canon should have done something to distinguish them a little better.  2 red rings?  ;D  What did the seller say? Ooops?

I am always intreaged on eBay when someone selling a $1000+ lens posts terrible photos, or none at all.  It generally makes me avoid the auction, although sometimes people just don't take the time.   If I am really interested I'll ask for detailed photos via email.

got a full refund. Seller was selling on the behalf of his partner so he doesnt much about lenses. I dont mind as I got my money back :) thanks to you guys we caught the problem before it was sent so no money wasted on both parties :):)

Yes, canon should ahve done something better on the IS II, like a slightly different paint work on the body...grrr

Painting it black would be nice

Would black with red flames be a suitable compromise?
