Given the initial list, I would say the 70-200 F4 IS L.
It is light.
My personal preference is the 70-200 f2.8L. I use it myself, but of course, the issue is the weight. For travel, i would think sticking with the F4 would do just nice
Weight wise, is around 750g for F4 vs 1.4kg for F2.8. Price difference is 1+k. But you give up so much more. So if you even think about using TCs or some portrait work, might as well just go for the 2.8.
If you get the F4 or the variable aperture lenses, you will not use them as much as the 2.8.

Whoa tis is a wonderful experience sharing.. Especially the part on where my perception may change (daredevil quote) on the usage of the lens becoz of its verstaility..Originally Posted by jas1984
Yap the price tag wif 2x TC may nearly hit the 4k mark..
Previously i carry 24-105 & 16-35 go climb mountain with modular.. I alrdy abit feel like breathless liao..
Go climb tower also shack...
The price maybe one, but the weight is definetly one tt abit scary..
Like to enjoy shooting and dun want it to turn into chores with heavy load..
Sigh like wat many says.. There is no perfect lens.. Tele, fast and light... Lol.. But if go for light setup, wat do u guys think.. Tele+light weight only..
5D Mark II, EF 24-105 IS F4L , EF 16-35 F2.8L II, EF 85 F1.8, Shld I wait for version 2 100-400 L??
Or if cost is your only concern you should also consider 70-200/2.8 non-IS or the IS mk1 apart from the ones mentioned above.
