The 70-300L is a great lens. I'm always using it wide open, and it's perfectly sharp in the center. The corners are not bad either, but the center is perfect. If you're shooting animals this is the area were you want sharpness.
Besides, the IS is the best I ever used, next to my 100mm L macro.

For example, I shot this monkeys from a canoe in river in costa rica with a 5d II.

I can confirm your comment about the IS. It's amazing. I almost have to deliberately shake the camera to get blur in my photos. I'm exaggerating of course, but the great IS is a huge advantage.
