    Local Photog posted up that he wanted to trade his 10 month old 70-200 f2.8 IS for a 70-200 f2.8 cause he wanted something lighter ( different in weight between the two is minimal LOL )

    just did the transaction. tested everything out. hood was still in the lil wrapper/baggy. Got the box, all paperwork ( even his receipt from B&H ) really nice older gentlemen

    Sorry, just wanted to post cause I'm happy. my 1200 lens for his 1789 lens

    Damn, nice score. I'd say keep it, unless you're really interested in getting the new IS II.

    is there an image quality difference between IS and non IS?
    Let's assume both are used with a tri-pod.
