Excerpt: This is one of my favorite lenses. I'm not going to write a technical review, but after carrying the 2.8 for years at night time events, this has been an absolute joy and easy on the hands for long periods of time. Have also used it in low light situations, and fashion shows with the ISO cranked up a little bit on a Canon 6D and 5D III, which tend to handle high ISO levels incredibly well. Would probably prefer the 2.8 for really low light work..
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Summary: The images I got from this lens (traded up to the IS model) are stunning. The first ones i shot in comparison to ones from previous lenses were so good I almost peed myself. This is definitely my favorite lens.
Excerpt: This is my second "L" series lens, and it is great! I debated on the f/2.8, but after reading other reviews I decided it wasn't worth it. The extra F-stop is not worth the extra grand.I have taken the 70-200mm f/4 to a few baseball games and a volleyball game. It has been great at the baseball games. I am new to photography, but don't use it on program mode. This lens on my Canon 7d captured some great shots. I actually got some ball on bat shots!
Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

Excerpt: I've been planning on getting a Canon 70-200 f2.8 for a while but was holding off for two reasons: the cost and the weight.
