    Why wouldn't you just get the 70-300IS? You get an extra 100mm AND IS.

  11. I thought about that lens, but I'd rather save for the 2.8....

    And the 70-300IS is pretty much crap, I've read a lot of reviews on Fredmiranda.

    :rofl: the overwhelming L response convinced me, plus the "value retention" factor that was pointed out. overall i'm very pleased with my decision.

    I would of waited for the 2.8 IS. You will eventually upgrade.

    The $$ difference is huge man, and I'm honestly just a hobbyist. There might be a time here and there when I could use the 2.8 and IS but those will be rare, and no justification for the extra $1100.

    You could find a 2.8 non IS for about $800. The one extra stop is worth it, not just because it's faster, but for the extra background blur. You'll probably upgrade down the road once the funds permit the 2.8 non IS or 2.8 IS. The 4.0L is a great lens, though.
