All great feedbacks, well I went ahead and borrowed a 70-200 f2.8 VII, as was curious, of course the images are excellent no doubt but at the same time the lens is way too heavy for daily use and way too big. Definitely not a casual use lens. Have decided to get the F4 after using the 2.8 and also reading all the discussions. Hope the F4 turns out to be almost similar sharpness as the F2.8 as quality was really sharp.

Also with the 6D could always use the extra stop as am sure will be sharp enough. Cant wait to get the F4 and update. Thanks for all the posts.

The F4 IS version is very sharp, even @f4! Even sharper than the old 2.8 version, but I would guess the new 2.8 version is sharper. Anyhow, the f4IS sharp enough. A brilliant lens on the 6D!
