I can't understand why they would discontinue it.....it is the nearest thing to the gold standard full frame 70-210 f2.8, at half the size and weight.

Agree, I don't understand the popularity of the 70-200 f/2.8 on APS-C. It is a nice focal length for some stuff (sports maybe), but I know a lot of wedding shooters that use them. After shooting half a dozen weddings, I think a 50-135 or 50-150mm would be far more useful.
