Well after a week of trying broth the lens, sold my F4 and bought a new 2.8 again. Just did not enjoy using the F4 , the 2.8 felt right in the hands and more balanced than the F4. Not that heavy and feels right. The picture quality is just amazing with the 2.8 compared to the F4, and the depth of field definitely shows. Finally kept the 2.8 in the bag and use it almost all the time. Took a while to make a decision and in the process bought sold 2 lenses but in the end definitely enjoying the f2.8, for me seems the correct way to go, as for the extra amount it is a great lens and the option to add a tele convertor makes it a winner.

Just goes to show how people's comfort zone with regard to weight/size is highly personal. Asking fellow forum members these types of questions is largely useless. One has to try and find out for one self.  My 70-200 II goes with me everywhere as well, although I suspect I am in the minority in that regard. IQ wise, there should be nothing between them.
