I am about to make my first Canon L Series lens purchase and am starting to feel conflicted. First off, I have saved up $750 to by my Canon 70-200mm F/4 L USM Non-IS lens, but keep reading online that everyone suggests the IS version. I sadly can't afford the IS version since it is $1,400 new, but I am noticing on KEH that I can get an EX+ quality one for $1,000. This is where the questions come in:
1. Is it worth buying a used IS version over a new non-IS version?
2. If the non-IS version works, is buying used from sites like KEH worth it (Since there is an EX quality one for around $499)?
I plan on using this lens for portraits, landscape and travel photography. I am sorry if this thread is in the wrong area! Thanks everyone!
