It may be hard to believe, but the 200 f/2L IS is better at all apertures than the 70-200 f/2.8L II IS lens at 200 mm.  In other words, get it if you have the funds.

In the next year or two I plan to pick up my first "great-white"... I thought of the 200mm f/2 IS, but I think I may go for the 300mm f/2.8 II IS instead... My 70-200 II can cover 200mm just fine, and I doubt I would require the f/2 that much, although it would be nice  :D

300mm gives me more range if needed (420mm at f/4 and 600mm at f/5.6 if needed with TC's). So it becomes a bit more versatile when needed.
