What makes the 200 so concealable is the fact that its not white.

It certainly is much easier to conceal than the big 70-200, and so far, I've found it to be hand holdable at 1/100 or so, which is pretty good all things considered.

But not much easier to conceal than 70-200/4. It is slower, but if your lens is handholdable at 1/100s, this one is at 1/10s. This is not to suggest that you made a bad decision. Just that Canon is making several excellent 200mm lenses and each has their own advantages. The 200/2.8 is excellent optically, but the least versatile.
