10 Ball tournament in Siebenbrunnengasse Vienna

Today I played in a 10 Ball tournament and had the opportunity to test my new lens.
(Canon EF 70-200mm 2.8 L IS II USM)
I did not perform well today but my new lens did.

 

It is much sharper then the previous version. (you can see the pores of every face under 100% view)
The IS is one stop faster compared to the old version. It was really no problem to shoot with 1/40 sec @ 200mm with my 7D(only possible on sitting peeps). The rest of this pics I was shooting between 1/80 and 1/125sec (because the players are also moving ;-) ). I am not sure if the focus is really faster. I just can tell you it is very fast.

 

So now to the main question who a lot of you guys is asking themselves.
Should I buy the old version or the new version. I just think if you own already the old version, there is no need to upgrade (only if you have to much money)
New buyers: If you have the money, go for the new one. The quality is prime like.
If you want to save money wait some more days until the previous lens gets cheaper (or buy a used one). You will save a lot of money and you get a very fast zoom lens with IS.
