My beloved Canon 70-200 F4L IS took a hit yesterday. My collapsable cabinet fell on the camera bag and since it's the longest lens I have it absorbed the fall. :(

OUCH!
I hope you have all risk cover on your house insurance.


Life is for living, cameras are to capture it (one day I will learn how!).

I don't know if I'll ever get a lens sharper than my dead lens.......good thing it didn't damage the 5DMKII with the brick attached to it....it would have been a catastrophe on my end......

Yes, my insurance company is covering the full price I insured it with...to bad, I'm taking a hit on inflation.....now another problem begins......get an F4L IS or 2.8L IS II.....decisions, decisions, decisions......

Take it as a upgrade. Go for the f2.8. Ask yourself, since you have been shooting 70-200 f4 for awhile. Do you need f2.8 or f4 better? Of course, you have to put price aside as everyone here know the f2.8 is expensive.
Since you insured your gears and the insurance company is paying for it. Pay a bit more and you are able to get your hands on the 70-200 f2.8 MKII.

If you were happy with the f/4 why spend double to get the f/2.8 II? For the difference, unless I really needed the f/2.8 for action I'd rather get the f/4 and a second newer lens. Looking at your lineup, perhaps another prime, maybe upgrading your 50mm.

P.S do you reckon a filter 'may' have saved it if you'd had one on?

maybe the front element...maybe... but the mount end is cracked and that wouldn't be saved.
