I do use the 70-200 F/2.8L IS II, personally. That's the one that drove the comment about the cost! Expensive but worthwhile IMHO. I've not had a chance to try the Sigma 17-50 f/2.8.

In my opinion the EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS II is unmatched by any other zoom lens. (we'll have to see about the new 200-400)
