I own the 70-200 2.8 Non IS. I wanted to see if the hype measured up. I rented a new IS mkII for comparison. I literally found no differences at any end of the zoom range.

However, I do not own an IS lens, and always am very consious of my technique. I can imagine if you shoot in low light often, the IS could save you some ISO room.

Regardless, the Non IS version is a STEAL at around $900 used. You cannot buy a better lens for the money! I shoot weddings, portraits and sports with it. I wouldn't upgrade to the IS mkII version even if I had money to burn.

Just find your slowest hand held SS at 200mm and don't go below it.
