Phantom, I see you have a full frame, so the 70mm end might work for portraits... But don't plan to include more than one head on the frame with this lens unless the party is in a large museum or similar. Also f4 would yield severely thin DoF on your 5d, so focus is going to be tricky.

I wouldn't go to this lens for indoor shots in small spaces... Lack of IS may prove even more difficult on those conditions also, but that is just me.

I agree with Rafa's comments. I feel the DOF at f/4 is great for shooting one person but it could be tough with more if they are not on a plane perpendicular to the camera. Below is an example of what you can expect. It's from a FF body at f/4 and 140mm.

On the other hand f/4 indoors without IS could make it tough to avoid blur, unless you really crank up the ISO. It all depends on how good the lighting is and whether you use a flash (which could be a bit difficult from a distance, depending on what you use.)

To those that have experienced both, is the IS essential and does it make a big difference?

Unless your shooting 1/20 and below you don't need it. Of course everyone would like it but if you are struggling to afford IS then just don't bother.

Cool thanks for your reply, is there a big difference if I was to go below 1/20?

Oh yea! IS does help in low light situations but remember your only at f/4 so your shots wouldn't be not blurry at 1/6 or something. It was possible with the 55-250 but the 70-200 f/4L is a bit heavier and pretty impossible to handhold at such lower speeds.

So it really depends on you, if you want the 4 stop stabilization and the weather sealing get the IS version, if you can't afford it or don't need get the non IS and maybe even add a 1.4 Extender.
