FYI - "Canon built two versions of the 200/2.8L USM. There's actually very little difference between them: optically and mechanically identical, the only significant difference appears to be that the Mk I has a rather ineffective integrated collapsible hood, while the Mk II has a rather better and deeper twist-off one. The Mk I's are significantly cheaper on the used market, though, so here's a possibility to save some money while making pretty minimal trade-offs"
