Default Which macro: EF 100mm f/2.8L or 100mm/2.8

I'm trying to decide between which of the Canon macro 100mm lenses to choose.

The L is almost double the price but has IS and better quality. I want to use this lens to photograph flowers, insect life and jewellery, and as an added bonus, portraits. I'm really tempted to buy the non-L and put the rest towards a secondhand full frame body, but I would be interested to hear what others think.

Canon bodies: 50D, 5D
Canon lenses: EF 50mm f/1.4, EF L 17-40mm, EF 100mm macro, EF L 300 f4.0
