That is a benefit, but the main performance benefit I hear is low light performance, which can be addressed with ISO.  For the cost difference beween a 70-200 F2.8 IS and 70-200 F4 IS, I can go from a Rebel to a 60D and get many more stops on all my lenses (plus everything else this body upgrade would give me!).  Seems like a no-brainer to me, but interested in what others have to say.
