^^^ :) I am surprised at how well this lens works with the Kenko 300 PRO 1.4.

For someone who is NOT a pro, and interested in this lens for nature photos, travel etc., would the added cost of this lens be worth it compared to the much cheaper non-L version? I can be picky about IQ, and weather sealing is attractive, so that's why I am looking at it.

Would appreciate any thoughts. Thanks.

I had the non-L version. This lens is vastly superior. IQ and IS are on a whole different level from the non-L.

I have had both. There is no way to compare these lenses. The L version is a world apart! Worth every penny. The L also takes the kenko 1.4 extremely well.

when I first got it I was stunned at the difference. I bought mine used from a member on here. Can't go wrong.

i sold this lens
its great and better than the non L in image quality
the IS is new ,fast focus and the size is good for the bag
but it makes the bag heavy :)
i like the 70-200 f/4 the non IS and with IS more than this lens


| Canon EOS | and some canon lenses

I agree with the others :D I've compared the l and the non-l side by side and in most cases the images are worlds apart.

Cheers
