I sold the mkII for $2100 and bought a mint, used 6 month old 135f/2 for $800 which made more sense to me since it is an often used range and f/2 made a difference..........and put $1300 back in the bank......

Canon 70-200 MKII = $2199

Canon 70-200 f/4IS ($1149) + Canon 135L ($999) = $2149

From the price perspective, you're not really putting back anything in the bank.

......not really since I kept both 70-200's for over a year for different purposes, the f/4IS for most sports/action and long outings, and the f/2.8II for those situations when I needed the faster lens which was not very the f/4IS was going to stay and down the road I sold the 135.....
