I am curious as what it looks like extended. I hate the new hood, looks like the 24-105 and it leaks light like crazy.Here's the photo
Also the current hood doesn't let you see the extended lens, which looks horrible...
Already preordered mine from adorama!
Damn that looks like a much more reasonable size than the Mk1, could be the fact that the lens hood isn't on it though. Thanks for sharing the pics and thoughts!
