What about the 70-200 f2.8 non IS or will it be updated soon. I like the idea of using a 2x extender.

less extreme, sell 70-300 and get 70-200f4IS. Amazing, I have it on the 40D and it rocks.

Sell you 70-300 and save another $1000 or so; then you can get the 70-200 2.8IS MKII and a 2x teleconverter. You would not be happier. I have this same setup but with a 50d for each lens. (17-55 like you as well). Best of both worlds and the 2x gives you 140-400 5.6 with AF. Just would take a little patience and saving....

400x with the 70-200 2.8IS is fun and quite impressive. Here are 3 taken with this setup. Nothing special, just my backyard.
