just waiting for a good day

It's arrived! my long awaited Canon 24 /105 f4 L IS Mk11.
First impressions, it's bigger, weather resistant seals , has a zoom lock, and a hood that locks, and it came with a leather pouch.
The finish is the usual quality L lens black with red line.
What you can't see are the new lens coatings, fluorite elements, the ten blade iris (the old one was 7 ) and the extra stop in IS.
So all I need now is a day without rain so I can give it a try. The reports from the States is it is much better than the old one, so lets hope so.
I got it because my old one is 8 years old and showing it, scuffs, loose scratched hood and a slack mount.
I was worried when the courier gave it to me, there was a rattle from the box.
Wex had included two "gold" (chocolate) coins, Phew!

I'll be looking for your eval/comparison - I am considering upgrading to the Mk II as well.

Re: just waiting for a good day

That's right Colin, it was my usual lens along with the 70 /300 f4 L IS, they cover almost all my needs.
My trials to date seem to show it to be quicker focusing, sharper and more resistant to flare than the "old" one, I am aiming to get some images to post this week end although the weather forecast is not great,
