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.

Which Rebel? You may not gain much, if anything, depending upon how old the Rebel is. But "many" more stops is probably unlikely.
