Quality over quantity? or Quantity over quality?

I think that decision depends on your level of commitment to this hobby. Do you want to learn and practice photography with the mindset that you want to be the best photographer you can be, and create the best images possible, or are you going to be content to only run your camera in auto. -rick

More seriously, it really does depend. For example, if you use a crop sensor camera, you'll find L image quality in several non-L lenses, although mostly at the wide-to-medium zoom range. So, if you mostly shoot wide to medium focal lengths, you'd do fine with non-Ls and not miss anything. On the other hand, if you shoot birds you need as much focal length as you can get and will almost certainly want Ls. There's really no right answer to your question, as the humorous answers above convey.
