I have heard that the 70-200 f4 is not at its best at minimum focus distance. Other than that the non IS version is only slightly less sharp than the IS version.

The 70-200mm f4 is SUPER at or past MFD.

The IS version, however, can be VERY problematic at MFD.

Yes, you're right. Thanks for your correction.
