I found someone selling the version 1 and am curious about it. would consider it and selling my F4 and possibly my 100mm macro to finance the purchase.
For some reason, I had a higher hit rate of keeper photos with the version 1 of the 70-200 2.8 IS than the version 2. But it could be that my copy of the version 2 is on the lower end of the spectrum, but I haven't tested a second copy either. I also changed camera bodies too so that's another variable. I don't think you can go wrong with either of them; Both have superb IQ. Maybe I can find a few pictures taken with them if I can find my external hard drive amidst all my junk.
