Good day to everyone! I would just like to know how's the performance of Canon's EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS USM version 1 on a Canon 650D body?

I don't own either of the ones you're asking. =) But just the same, you may find a comparison of performance at dxomark.com. 

They have tested

the 70-200 2.8L IS USM (http://www.dxomark.com/index.php/Lenses/Camera-Lens-Database/Canon/EF70-200mm-f-2.8L-IS-USM/%28camera%29/870/%28cameraname%29/Canon-EOS-700D)

and the 70-200 2.8L IS II USM (http://www.dxomark.com/index.php/Lenses/Camera-Lens-Database/Canon/Canon-EF70-200mm-f28L-IS-II-USM/%28camera%29/870/%28cameraname%29/Canon-EOS-700D) on the 700D (no 650D, but since they have the same sensors, I'd be betting the camera performance would not be far off)

Seems to me that there's a big improvement in image quality from the 2nd version.  But as it is, an L lens would be enough guarantee that it'll  give you great results

The lens is soft when shot wide open, need to stop down a bit to improve the sharpness. I'm guessing the image quality would be better on a full frame sensor. If you don't really need the F2.8, you would be better off with the 70-200 F4 IS, it's lighter plus it cost less. No point of getting the F2.8 if your just going to shoot at F4.

Here a comparison between the F2.8 IS and F4.0 IS

Haven't had the chance to use the Ver 2. But based on reviews, it's sharp wide open. You can use the comparison tool on my earlier post to check in the difference in image quality.

Where are you going to use the lens? Indoor sport photography? Weddings?

For me the IQ is still acceptable when shooting wide open. I usually stop down to F3.2 to get better sharpness and contrast. But what might be acceptable to me, might not be to you. With the price difference of the version 1 and 2, you might be better off upgrading to a FF body for better IQ and ISO performance.
