That honkin' 430ex looks absurd on that Rebel. Like Snoopy sitting on Lucy's head in "A Charlie Brown Christmas."

I'm never going to put anything more than a 270ex on mine. I'm not going to debate the features. It fits my needs. :D

I find my f/4 IS balances perfectly on my Xsi! When I do events, I have my 24-70 on my 40D and the 70-200 on my Xsi.

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.

Well, my T1i is already gripped, so that's all set...

I went with the f4. I'll probably end up regretting it in a couple months and sell it back to someone on this forum, but hey--it'll give Canon time to get the 2.8 IS II out there. :)

I made the mistake today of taking my 19 month old out to the park with my 7D, 70-200 and 580ex in hopes of getting some outdoor OCF shots. I think the 580 was trampled on at least 5 times by little feet......

Yeah,i got the 70-200 L f 2.8 on a canon 450D,its no drama

all good,takes sharpe pics,geat bokeah.it is heavy,but its ging to be heavy

on a XX D or X D body too!,it will be fine,just dont hold it by camera body by itself.it is a big lens,but amazing results in low light

I guess the deciding factor for me was that I don't really need 200mm of focal length for the indoor shots I'm taking--the 24-105 is the perfect indoor family/kids lens IMHO. Great for landscapes too. Of course when my daughter starts playing an instrument or doing ballet I'll have an excuse to go for a faster zoom or prime tele. In the mean time I think the f4 will suit me fine. I'm finding with my 24-105L that f/4 gets you ample shutter speed at a low ISO even on an overcast day.

Another factor is that my wife is a little intimidated by the camera, and the less monstrous the whole setup is, the more likely she'll be to pick it up and use it when I'm not around, so that's a plus for the f4 too. "Turn the dial to the green square, and zoom in/out here..." :)
And with the $600 I saved I can buy a carbon fiber tripod. :)

You won't regret getting the 4; unless you plan on shooting in conditions where the 2.8 would be more suitable. :)

hahaha I guess I am not the only one who has been cheap when it comes to tripod :D but at least I've been smart enough not mounting my 40D + the brick on that piece of crap :D

Since you support most of the 2.8 weight by holding the lens, using it on a smaller DSLR, gripped or not, should not be too much of an issue. Though it might look kind of strange, like putting a 580EX atop a G10 or 11 point and shoot.

And maybe you won't regret it! I used to have the 2.8 non-IS and recently replaced it with the f/4IS. The weight was a big factor. I found I was leaving the 2.8 at home more often than not, because I didn't want to carry it around along with all the other stuff my kid seems to need when we go anywhere. The f/4 IS is a lot smaller and lighter, and has seen much more use than the f/2.8. I also get more keeper shots because of the IS. Personally I have absolutely no regrets about making the swap and am very, very happy with the f/4 IS.

Enjoy your lens!
