Thank you William and Taquin,
I 'll try to use one in shop, if they permit it.

Does anybody know if this wide open softness can be eliminated or improved with some post processing?

I have a non is f4 version and every once in a while I'm tempted to trade it in toward a 2.8 is.... but mine is just so fricken sharp wide open that I'd hate to jinx it and not be able to get it back. What a fantastic lens..... and I'm always surprised by the bokeh even though it's only f4.

I guess if I were a sport or theater shooter I'd be more tempted.... but my main goal is to have the most fidelity and crispness as possible.

Many thanks to all,

Finally I went to the shop, tried both 70-200 IS versions, and while the f2.8 (tried 2 copies) was impressive in built quality , the f4 version was remarkably sharper wide open @ 70 and 200mm.

So I bought 2 lenses, one 70-200 f4 IS and one 50 1.2 L and I'm very very pleased with their performance.

Best Regards,
Ioannis
