70-200 f4L IS or 70-200 f2.8 no IS

Hi all,

I can get either of these lenses for the same price.

I havnt been able to test either, just know that the f2.8 will be heavier to walk around with.

What are the IQ differences?

How is IQ at f2.8? I read its not great.

I would use it mostly for street portraits, so, not sure if the IS would be useful or not.

Would use on 7Dm2 for now, possibly a7Riii in the future.

Thanks all,
