Would this work for the 70-200L IS 2?

Yep.

It may be a bit longer than you need, I don't know. But otherwise it's fine.

Yes, they say it's for the "EF 70-200mm/f2.8L non-IS/IS/IS-II"; and length isn't a problem.

I would skip the plate, it's too long. It'll start getting in the way of your zoom, stay with a smaller one like a desmond 70mm:

works fine on my RRS clamp, and 1/4 the price.....

RRS vs Gitzo? RRS parts machined from solid aluminum alloy, black anodized. Gitzo- cast Apex/spyder, painted. Gitzo has many reported broken leg supports at the Apex and adhesive failures with legs coming out of hardware adapters. Gitzo customer service appears to be much less responsive than RRS.

RRS has an easy solution for connecting a camera strap such as Black Rapid to an Arca Swiss compatible plate. The B2-FABN is a ARCA type screw clamp with 1/4-20 threaded hole on bottom for attaching the black rapid attachment. it also has a couple of strap slots so a narrow nylon strap can be attached. I use a small quick release lanyard between the camera strap ring and the ring on the Black Rapid strap as a safety in the event that the clamp screw should loosen. It has never happened, but probably will if I remove the safety strap.
