According to Warehouse Express Canon have released a new version of the popular 70-200L F4 lens with a 4-stop image stabilizer!!
Does anyone know of any web sites offering reviews of this lens as I have got the original 70-200L F4 and very interested in the image stabilizer version.

If only they'd bring out a version with a 4-stop subject stabilizer. Pop up flash taser replacement anyone?
70-200L F4 TZR...you heard it here first
LOL now thats funny, you can zap someone with the onboard taser and then take their photo while they're shocked
I've got this, the EF 70-200 F4L IS USM, and it is a pin sharp lens. I very rarely use the IS though, sports shots seem better without it.
There are excellent reviews of most Canon (and some Sigma and Tamron) equipment at www.the-digital-picture.com

Thanks guys I will have a look at those reviews. I was only wondering whether it is tack sharp as my current 70-200L F4. I could do with the image stabilizer to help me shoot in low light conditions.
stop being tight and get the F2.8 IS version
Better go and give your arm muscles a work-out first, though!
the 2.8 isnt that heavy, I use one all day long with no ill effects, only wimpoids suffer from holding one!!
When I am photographing at events I use all my lenses on a monopod, even a 50mm,
I really have been doing it too long. For me its not the arms but the back that goes in the end.
Also, it does help in shooting at slower shutter speeds.
get back problems now and again but thats mainly when shooting in the rain, the extra weight on the rain cover makes things worse, in general though find that monopods are too slow for horse photography
use a neoprean neck strap to take weight when not shooting
I have found that tracking in Horses using a monopod does help, also, because the camera is always at eye level I am always ready for the unexpected shot,8 to 12 hours a day shooting is hard enough w/a the added pressure of that amount of weight constantly on my neck. The pro digital bodies are a lot heavier than the old film bodies, I always tell anybody working for me to use a monopod as I do not want any sort of RSI prob ocurring in the future.
found monopods for tracking ok, but when jumping the different heights that horses do it makes it hard with a fixed height monopod etc, you end up missing the heads off the riders
