One thing not mentioned is lens flare. I had a non-IS 70-200/4 for years, but could not shoot into the lght, especially with the sun in the frame, without having objectionable flare.
I don't have this problem with my 70-200mm f/4 ... perhaps your filter caused the flares (or the lack of one)?
Attached is a photo of the blue angels at the Chicago air and water show. Taken with t2i, 70-200 f4 IS + x1.4 III so it is a pretty close representation of what the that lens + extender combo would be with the 7d. I now have the 7D and I can say that the 70-200 f4 IS performs excellently with it. My only complaint is that I feel the 70-200 focal length range is a better companion to FF than crop. Many times I find the 70 too long and the 200 too short for my needs, which has me switching back to the 100-400 or 15-85. But when 70-200 on a crop fits the focal length i need the results are superb!
Also forgive the lowing quality of the image as I just pulled it from my Facebook and posted it here as I am not at home.
The Japanese Yen has fallen considerably in value in recent months. Japanese exports should therefore be much cheaper now for buyers, so why are Canon prices remaining so high? I'd love a new Canon 5D mk III but current MAP limitations are keeping prices high and stopping me from buying.
