Yes, this is strange. Professionals like the DXO staff do not make errors like this so I can only think that the subject lens used for the review was suspect.

I have had both of these lenses and found the MKII to be better by quite a margin on Contrast, Sharpness and AF Speed.

These results are quite a surprise to me as I was expecting them to be amongst the best in any class.

Am I kidding myself, is this lens really that bad? I don't think so.  :-\

What is the answer?

I think if change resolution test from 70-200 2,8 IS MK2 to 70-200 2,8 IS II MK2, then it will be true.  ;D  

Second version of 70-200 2,8 L IS is realy good.  ;D

It is missinfg of DXO-Mark...  ::)
