I got an 80-200L used but in mint condition and used it for at least ten years (maybe more), on film body and then on digital 5D2. A great lens - no problems whatsoever - I loved it. The ONLY reason I sold it about a year ago is that it does not accept teleconverters. I used it in conjuction with a 300 f4 lens, but it was too heavy carrying both so I opted to buy a 70-200 and use a 1.4x to make up for the 300 (which I also sold). However, for video and if 200 is long enough you will have no regrets whatsoever.
