I swapped the endcaps with the genuine Canon one so I kept the weather sealing.
If you have the 5D, you wont really notice much new with the 5D II. I used one for a weekend, I wasnt thrilled with it because there was not much more than what I already had. The 1D was my next logical upgrade.
Thanks for responding. I had a feeling that I wouldn't notice much of a difference. I need a good telephoto zoom now.
