      On a 70-200 type lens, f4, I feel IS is not all that important, it is light and easily hanheld. But you should know your physical prowess, and the conditions under which you take the majority of your photos with your old lens. How many times did you have to rely on the IS to get the shot. Analyze, then decide.

      to be honest – I never use VR (IS for Canon) on any of my lenses – it is permanently turned off.

      The IS version of this lens is much sharper than the non IS. There is more to their differences than just the IS implementation. I had the IS version and was very happy.

      I would agree with Jeffrey that there is more to the lens than just the IS function

      A nice lens, cheaper than the Canon version, and quite good, but not as sharp overall as the Canon. Older design too.
