that big - thought several times about getting the 70-200 f/2.8 II but skipped it because it does not bring significant advantages and it is quite heavy.

More contradiction.

The 70-200 F2.8 has no significant advantages. This is from the chap who goes on and on (correctly) about the bokeh of a 300 f2.8 yet does not see this huge advantage of the 70-200 f2.8 in that regard..

Also, how about the 70-200 F2.8 being heavy but the 300 f2.8 NOT being that heavy...

The 70-200 f/4.0 L IS USM is the best of the slow zooms - and probably not really much worse but the other slow zooms are a good deal worse then the 70-200 f/2.8 II

No. The 70-300 L is as good.

Yet some really good primes perform excellent wide open and almost as good as stopped down one or two stops

I could detect no difference in the 400 f5.6 L stopped down.

Joger, you are as consistent as a decerebrate drunk mouse chasing a piece of cheese on a tightrope...
