70-300 standard or L series
Sep 5, 2011

Hi all,
Im looking for another lens. mainly to replace my cheapy 55-250mm IS.

Looking at the 70-300 range, I was looking at 3 of them (canadian $)
the 70-300 IS USM (800)
70-300 IS USM DO (1500)
70-300 IS USM L (1550)

The Do is now out since its about the same price as the L version but it is nice and compact.

I did lots of reading online and the standard is a nice lens and about half of the price.

Can anyone give me some reasons on if I should bite down and get the L over the standard?

thanks
