Not bad...pretty usable. I'd rather have this then miss a shot.

I currently have (FF):
35mm f2 (indors)
50mm f1.4 (outdors and portrait)
Wish I had 80mm f1.2 and a macro prime (no matter the focal distance)
mostly the 70-300 goes on the 5DII and the 70-200II goes on the 7D/1D4 due to the use that I make of the different bodies.
In your case, they would have similar lengths and would be substitutes to each other; Interestingly, I was thinking the other way around : 70-200 on the FF for portraits and indoor shots and the 70-300 on the Crop for more reach, I don't need redundancy as much, I want range.
Agreed - that's why I use the 100-400mm on my 7D and the 70-200mm on my 5DII, for the most part.
I believe that the 70-300L is better at the 70-100 range than the 70-200II - however it may be better colour contrast . However this is personal preference based on A3 prints rather than some scientific test.
That said both lens are top draw - I am happy to have both - mostly the 70-300 goes on the 5DII and the 70-200II goes on the 7D/1D4 due to the use that I make of the different bodies.
The usual testing procedure is to manually focus (10x live view) or better yet, focus bracket (and take the sharpest image) to compare sharpness across lenses.
The 70-200 is sharp and very nice overall, still... both copies not as sharp as my 70-300L.
Your experience differs from some of the reviews. Are you basing the comparison on images where you used autofocus, and have you done an AF microadjustment for your lenses?
Basically, my point is that it took a lot of work over a few hours just to get this far, and i'm still not happy. Whether it's the fault of Hugin that is introducing the noise from the darkest shots in the dark-areas or what, I don't know. But I doubt that any automated-program or in-camera settings can get anywhere near this with no user input, at least for now...

I sold my very first L lens which was the 100mm f2.8L macro.. it was an awesome lens but i sold it to fund a 5d mk 2... and i know i wouldnt do as much macro photography as i would with street and landscape... Although the upside is i got a full frame i wish i would hold on to it
