Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS II USM & IS III USM for same price

Hi,

Looking for some advice.

I am contemplating a purchase of the Canon 70-200 f/2.8 L IS USM or the 100-400mm f/4.5/5.6 L IS II USM [Kids School Programs, Band Competition, Nature, Sunsets, Birds].

I see that the 70-200 f/2/8 II & III are available for $2099. I also see that in some cases, the Version II is being sold for $1650+. I am not able to determine whether this is intentional or if I am paying too much ($2099) for the Version II? For $2099, I can go ahead and buy the Version III, but I really don't need the latest for my use. I am trying to decide whether to settle with the Version II for the lower price.

The other option I am looking for is the 100-400mm.

Weight & Price are not Factors. I just want to pay for what the Lens is worth, nothing more. If I buy the 70-200, I might buy the 2X Canon Extender also.
