I've had a canon 70-200mm f/2.8L non-IS for maybe 5 years, using it on both crop and FF cameras. It is without doubt my most-used lens and i would heartily recommend it on either crop or FF.
With respect to IS/OS, i do miss it sometimes, but less than might be anticipated reading many comments i've seen on the topic: IS/OS is really most useful for static subjects in low light, but if you shoot anything that is moving you need a higher shutter speed anyway. Personally i just push up the ISO to keep the shutter speed as high as i can, and live with the noise. Certainly a sharp noisy picture is a lot more useful than a clean blurry one. I also have "poor mans IS" in the form of a monopod, which comes in handy for indoor events like school plays and such.
I would also comment that i bought my 70-200mm used and if i were to sell it tomorrow i would get back all the money i paid for it.
