All the reviews I checked out so far make it clear that this is an extraordinary lens. The “II” suffix” may mislead you to believe this is a smaller update. But it is not. It’s an entirely different class compared ot the predecessor. Here are a few feedbacks:

PetaPixel writes “top-end performance to keep pace with the newest cameras”.
