The 70-300L seems sharper than my 70-200mk.ii, but then I have been shooting f2.8... I don't mind the softness for portraits, but do you guys feel the same?

Hmm, 70-200 f/2.8 II is supposed to be tack sharp wide open (mine is) so maybe yours requires some AF micro adjustment?

Both the 70-300L and the 70-200Lii are very sharp ... so I think nobody's going to be able to answer your question without examples posted?

+1. My 70-200 II is tack-sharp, but I did AFMA.

My experiences shooting volleyball with a 7D, single rapid strap and a monopod/light duty grip ball head have been pleasant enough. With frequent down time between matches, moving around with the sling strap/folded monopod combo and quick release grip certainly minimizes the "feel" of the 70-200, and composing/zooming  with handle reversed to the left and right hand on the controls feels sturdy.
