Optically this lens is excellent, and it can be had for a ridiculously low price second-hand.

There are a number of reasons that you might prefer a current lens:

Image stabilisation
Weather sealing
Silent focussing
Preference for a conventional zoom ring rather than a push-pull design

If none of those matter to you then you can get one of these and save yourself 90% or more of the price of the 70-200 f4L IS USM
