DPReview posted their review of the Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II lens, and it is a very enthusiastic review. DPReview’s pros list:

  • New optical design delivers high performance

  • Sharp at all focal lengths, at all apertures, and across the frame

  • Sharper than MkI version, and sharpest in class

  • Excellent image stabilization

  • Very close focusing, 0.31x magnification at 400mm, beats all rivals

  • Fast, positive and accurate AF

  • Top-grade weather-resistant build

  • Easy handling for focal length range, now with twist-ring zoom

The most significant statement, possibly, is the following: “[…] it’s hard to see how [the EF 100-400mm] might be further improved in any meaningful way […]“. Well done Canon!
