I currently have the 70-200 f4 IS and so far have been happy with it, but reading post after post on how much better the F2.8 MK II is it has me thinking about the upgrade

I have shoot thousands of pictures with both and trust me - the F2.8 MK II is no better than the 70-200 f/4 IS L.

The advantage of the f/2.8 is the extra stop and more flexible handling of light. If you need that get it. Otherwise be happy with your 70-200 f/4 IS L. I am using the F2.8 MK II at the moment because I need the extra stop. The day I do not need the extra speed anymore I'm back with the 70-200 f/4 IS L.

Mix of the two - who can tell?
