Would you straight swap your 70-200 F2.8 II for the new F4 version?

Hi All

Seriously considering this.  I just wondered if a dealer might do this and if so, I think I would be tempted. The 2.8 is an amazing lens but not always practical.

What would you do?

I might see adding this lens but never swapping a 70-200 f2.8 for it. In the situations I purchased the 70-200 f2.8, low light sports/events,  a 70-200 f4 simply wouldn't be up to the task.  I'd be back to needing a 70-200 f2.8 again and mine is already paid for.

On the other hand, I could see swapping my 16-35 f4/24-120 f4 for a 1635f2.8VRIII/24-120f2.8VRIII. The weight/size simply never bothers me as I still use the 70-200 f2.8 as a walk around lens anyways.
