FWIW Between Canon US and Canon Europe, at least 6 appear to be current. F/4 non-IS, F/2.8 IS, F/4 IS, F/4 IS II, F/2.8 IS II, and F/4 IS III. The only on that seems to be actually discontinued is the first version of the F/2.8 IS and it is still widely available. Not saying this is all the sensible, but I can see the sense in extending and non extending versions. Note also, that all those 70-200s are L series lenses, whereas at 70-300, we have one L and 3 non-L versions that seem to be current. Sony is the poster boy for introducing new cameras and not discontinuing the old one, but Canon does quite a bit of the same thing with lenses.Seven from Canon? AFAIK that works only if B&H carries discontinued versions of those lenses.
