Just pick up the non-IS version. It goes for $1200 right now. It's also arguably sharper than the II.
That's just plain wrong. I have had every version and can state categorically that the 70-200 2.8L IS II is far sharper than the non-IS version. Not even close.
This can also be verified at the Digital Picture.....
Agreed, I wouldn't consider an original even if it were free. Go with the EF70-200 F4L IS until you can afford the 2.8.
