Is the IQ a big different between 70-200mm f4L IS and 70-200mm f2.8 II?

70-200mm f4L IS is as good as it gets (samples)

Have the 70-200 f/2.8 IS L II because I need the extra f-stop, but I have had the f/4 version also and used it a lot. Its just as good as big brother in every respect - as long as you do not need the extra stop. The day I no longer need f/2.8 I will go back to the lighter and more handy f/4.

Some samples with the f/4 IS L:

Good luck with your choice!
