    Well I finally pulled the trigger on some L glass and a couple others, and all for $1324.99 new w/ warranty. What do you Canon guys think of the 2.8 w/o IS

    I would've bought a used 70 200 2.8 non IS for $950-1000 instead of buying one new - how much did you pay (after rebate)?

    Yea but its hardly noticeable. I didnt see a need for IS with my shooting style (mostly landscape) particularly when I can put that money into a flash and a thrifty fifty and still have some change for a polarizer.
