The folks at Lens Rentals reviewed the new Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS III. They got a close eye on the improved anti-flare coating of the lens.

From their conclusion:

So is it worth the upgrade? It’s hard to say. The lenses are identical in construction and sharpness, and the reduced flaring works better on a marketing level than in person. If you don’t have a 70-200mm, then this new one would be worth the purchase. But if you already own the version II of this lens, it probably makes a lot of sense to hold on to it, as the used market prices on it will drop once the new version comes more prevalent. But I’d like to know your thoughts – is this new release justified? Or is it just a cash grab by Canon? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

The Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS III sells at $2,099 at B&H Photo | Adorama | Amazon
