Eml,
This is also the lens I wanna get!  It is saved in my Amazon wish list.  I'm waiting for a price cut.  Hope they'll drop the price soon. 8) ;D

I think most of the issues mentioned can be attributed to the attached.

I find with mine that it does rattle when shaken, depends on just how you want the result, I actually prefer "over ice but not shaken", I really hate that rattling noise in my 70-200.

When attached to your Camera Body you may find some mild to serious issues with weather sealing.

Attachment does cause light leak issues except when used in the dark.

Only real downside on mine is the Zoom Rings are very very difficult to Zoom with,

I can't speak for others of course, but I can say that mine does produce an amazingly good Cappuccino just when you need it, about dawn in the Okavango Delta.

I have owned the 70-200 f/2.8L IS II for a little over one year. I have shot well over a thousand keepers with it. I have not heard any internal noises from this lens. The lens is used with my Rebel T2i.  I have noticed two items. The brighter the sun light the faster and more accurate the lens will focus. Do not bother with The Canon 2X converter unless you have super bright day. Focus and image is noticeably softer than without the 2X. Having said that, I have used this lens combination at Air Show with the Blue Angels. I had a super bright day, the photos were just about 85% keepers. Not sure if it is the lens or the body that is the issue. Likey if I had a higher end body, these issues would be less. Overall this lens rarely gets swapped out for any other lens.

Can't believe this thread is still going. I am definitely loving the lens! It's super sharp. I still haven't had chance to AFMA it, but hopefully will soon!

I'm trying to decide on teleconverters - either the 1.4 or 2x. Might buy a version II of the 1.4 and a version III of the 2X.

That's a good plan and unless you have one of the Mk II big whites, the difference between the 14x II and III isn't worth the money.  The 2x II and III are much different, however, so that's the way to go...
CPS Score: 111 points, those 0 and 1 point items really add up
