The lens is superb. There is one issue that has been well documented but you may not know about it - focus breathing. Due to the design of IF lenses they do not reach their max focal length unless focused at infinity. At their closest focus distance they are shorter than the stated focal length. The 70-200 MkII suffers more than most. It is about 135mm at it's closest focus distance. You will probably notice this sooner or later so you should know it is normal for this lens.
