I am thinking of getting a 5D Mark II but wondering how my 70-300 IS USM will look? (Non L...) It looks pretty good on my T1i as long as its focused correctly... I seem to get quite a few shots that could be more in focus so I dunno if its the archer or the arrow. Probably the archer :)

Someone made a comment on another forum that it would NOT look good so I just wanted to ask the people that really know ;)

You'll be able to use it just fine. There may be more vignetting, but it'll be slight, and mitigated by the 5D2's Peripheral Illumination Correction feature.

I was happy with my 70-300 IS until I moved to FF. The 70-300 is sharp in the center, but becomes softer as you move away from the center. The fact that you use a larger part of the lens with a FF sensor has therefore an impact on IQ.
I recently traded my 70-300 for a 70-300L and I am happy again :)

I believe it is said to be weak at the edges on FF. It was a real APS-C wonder when introduced, close to 70-200 f/4 over much of 70-200 range but has non-constant f/4, rotating front, slower and much worse AF and from all I see the image quality starts to quickly tail off past the APS-C borders.
