I'm thinking of getting a 70-200mm for my 5D II. There are four versions of it that span a large price range. Any owners have advice on the IS on this lens? Based on cost/value, I am leaning towards the f/4 IS version, and then maybe the f/4 non-IS.

I have the f/4 non IS version, and it is a wonderful lens. Sharp, great contrasty images, solid build and light compared to the f/2.8 versions. On my camera it quickly loses it's usefulness indoors in anything but the brightest of light, but with the 5DII's awesome high iso performance that may not be such a hindrance. My only choices at the time were the f/4 or the f/2.8 versions, the f/4 IS wasn't out yet. I'd probably be leaning towards that if I were in shopping for a good telezoom now.

^Thanks. I read the IS version gives 4 stops of shake correction, so I'll probably go for that one. I also might try out a 1.4 or 2x extender with it to try shooting birds or sports, but I think I read the image can degrade a bit, depending on settings. I have to research it (the extender) more.
