Unless your subject matter will generally be in a poorly lit environment, the F4 IS should be a contender for your ultimate choice.
The ability of modern camera bodies to take high iso images without adversely compromising the resulting exposure, together with the excellent IS capabilities of the F4 lens allowing between a 3 or 4 f-stop advantage may be the answer to what you need.
The quality of the F4 lens in daylight conditions is superb, but one of the biggest advantages of the F4 IS over the 2.8 IS or non IS, is the weight difference.
Your original thread was comparing the F4 IS with the 2.8 non IS, so if the 2.8 IS isn't on your list, then I know which one I would choose. If the 2.8 IS is within your budget, I would still condisder getting the F4 IS and another lower middle range zoom with good glass and a low F number.
