Weight and size is the most important consideration for me since I do most of my shooting when I travel. The f/2.8 would have stayed home most of the time.

Yep, weight of the 2.8 is almost double (1490g vs 760g). Ditto for the travel consideration. With 2 bodies and other heavy lenses, that matters. I personally would like to have both lenses eventually. I love my 4.0, and for much of my work (in the wilderness or in urban situations, or anytime I walk a LOT) the 4.0 is way better for me. When shooting performers on (indoor) stages, I do wish I had the 2.8 at times. I just got myself a new 5d3, so I plan to wait a while.
