I used the 70-300 IS with the 30D/40D and now with the 5DII, and I think it's very good. My only complaint is the lack of full-time manual focusing.

Re: 70-300is OR 70-200F/4

I have owned both and have had good results from both. I do think the 70-200L F4 gives sharper results at maximum aperture (as you would expect from an L lens) but the IS of the 70-300 is an advantage. Depends what you need it for as well. For what I do I decided I did not need the extra reach so sold the 70-300 and bought 70-200L f4. Love this lens. Build quality is great too.
