I have both the L and non-L. The non-L is a very sharp lens and not to be sneezed at. I have taken many excellent shots with it. In the centre stopped down the two lenses are both extremely sharp. The L is better in the following respects ...

sharper at edges
better contrast at edges
less chromatic aberration at edges
sharper wide open
richer colours
L-quality build & sealing
AF is faster and more accurate
FTM focusing
front element doesn't rotate

I figure it's worth the extra for all of these reasons, even though I'm still fond of the non-L, which is a bargain.

The AF innaccuracy of the non-L really bothered me. The contrast also faded away above 200mm on it too.
