Much faster focus. Much heavier (more lens elements). Better focus closer up (a problem for carrying the lens. Too many things were just too close). Seems to be closer to a true 2.8 through the entire lens range.

These are first impressions. Build quality seems to be just as high or higher. New lens hood that has the little finger tab (more positive lock and attachment).

Have not tried the horizontal mode to compare yet or the tripod mode. Or used it in a studio though I think it will be brilliant there.

My original version is for sale on eBay now. First buyer had hacked an account and was a criminal. Sigh. Wish we had better craigslist in my little town area.
