all depends on what you need it for. if you do a lot of low light action, the 2.8. if for casual shooting. the F4....it's much easier to handle.

as for the bokeh, they both have 8 aperture blades, so they should be similar. you'll just be able to get a shallower DOF with the 2.8

I have used both and i will go for the F4 version. The weight of 2.8 is really a killer. :sweat:
the size of the f2.8 is better, easier to hold and more comfortable. provides a better gripping surface.

2.8 for me anytime............ You can get whatever you expect from F4L IS with 2.8L provided using it with correct holding technics or monopod. But not the other way round.

2.8 is heavier but it is something anyone can get used to after sometime.:cool::cool:

well, tho i don use canon, i would still choose the f2.8, with newer camera popping out so often with better and better NR, one can easily bump the ISO to get pretty decent shutter for handheld without IS.
I use to find my 80-200 too heavy, but now when i handheld my other lens, i find them too light... -_-", but i still prefer light load when it comes to carrying gear around.

F4 IS

IQ much better at tele end and weight for travelling. If i need a faster lens, i would prefer primes
