The 2.8 aperture and IS is of real value when shooting weddings. The combination of f4.0 and no IS for low light wedding work can cause headaches. Save your money and do it right the first time. Ultimately that's the cheaper route.
I totaly agree with you on this, I really do, but I look at it like this.
Buy a 70-200 NON IS till you can afford the 70-200 f/2.8 Is MK II, just like I am doing, when you have enough cash saved up, turn around, sell your f/4 for what you have in it, then use the money you have saved to go along with the lens you just sold to afford the 70-200 f/2.8 IS, essintially, you are out no more money than you would be to wait and save for the 2.8, Just logicall thinking.
