You've got a FF and one that does pretty well at higher ISO.  Th, but at a significant higher cost and weight.  Unless you need the f/2.8, you will love the 70-200 f/4 IS, even with a 1.4x, IMHO.

Get the f/2.8 non-IS only if you absolutely need f/2.8 (and cannot afford the 70-200/2.8L IS II). Else, the f/4 IS has better IQ, and is smaller and lighter.
I agree.  Non-IS can be much harder to use.  Depends on what you photograph, of course.
