Yes! As many of us who want a rather big white L telephoto that does not cost a 5 digit amount  ::)

My 70-200/2.8L IS II with 2x TC III performs as well at f/5.6 and 400mm as does my 100-400L when the IS on the 100-400 is turned off.  With the IS on, the 70-200 is more consistently sharp and has vastly better IS and handling.

Copy issue?

Doubt it.  This is from my 100-400L:

How much sharper is the 70-300L than the 100-400?
