Narrowed down to the 70-300L.  I don't think my wife will notice.  All will be well.
Thanks for the insight.

LOL!
I told my wife my 70-200 2.8 was the same black telephoto I was using previously (Tamron 70-300) but without the black covering. I don't know if she really believed me or merely pretended to, but she didn't bring that up again...  :-X

Great and nice and compact. 300mm reach and can be weak for wildlife though, sadly.
It's small enough that lots of stadiums let it in.
Image quality is better than the 70-200 f/4 IS at the ends of the 70-200 range and a bit worse in the middle (better than 70-200+1.4x TC over 201-280).

Women are smart...they let somethings go knowing full well what it is....sometimes out of sheer pity for this grown adult behaving like a little schoolboy and sometimes out of "I'll bide my time till he tries for that big ticket item". But they never let things go in vain. ;)
