Pics of the 70-200 L lenses (4 and 2.8) mounted on a XTi/T1i?

I'm deciding between these two lenses, and just can't find a pic of the 70-200 2.8 L mounted on a XTi/T1i body. I'm just trying to get a feel for whether the 2.8 is the massive hog of a lens that everyone says it is.

I'm leaning toward the f4 with IS right now because it's a much more walkable lens, but I might reconsider if I hear a bit more "bah--it's not as big and heavy as you think" comments...

Any shots would be appreciated. Thanks.

I'm not really worried about being physically able to lift it--more about the unwieldiness when walking around a zoo with my daughter, etc.

The f4 isn't exactly inconspicuous so I'll scream "camera geek!" either way, I suppose.

I'm not sure I need the extra stop all that badly since I'll be doing 90+ percent of my indoor shooting with my 24-105 L anyway, so I'm thinking the smaller size, half the weight, and an extra stop of newer-generation IS will win out. The bokeh of the f/4 is still quite nice, and sharpness really doesn't seem to suffer at all with the f/4 wide open.

I have till midnight to take advantage of the rebate, so I need to decide soon. :)

It is small! :)

Personally, I don't think it is a big issue. Either way you should be holding the setup by the lens, and in that case it won't matter. You just don't want to try to one hand the combo from just the rebel grip if you want your wrist to stay healthy.

It's looks more in proportion than using the 600mm on a 1D body!

I don't find my 70-200f2.8L IS that big on my 450D, but the small body grip is definitly hurting my hand, thanks to the BG-E5 grip i can relax my hand before i get a gramp. But now with the 7D, no more problem. :D

Having an even bigger body hurts even more. That thing weighs a ton...

we have the 2.8IS with our gripped T1i. Carrying it all day long on some trips out of town was tiring, but a 2 hour walk in the park was a walk in the park. If you are going to want to shoot in portrait mode though I would really recommend a grip.

hey i got an OT question here, a little trivial but i'll ask anyway..

what's the correct/best way to sit your DSLR if the lens is much more heavier than the body itself? i've seen people sit the lens down, and the body will be above.
