Is it worth buying a used 70-200 f4 L (NON IS Edition)

Well worth it

The vast majority of the shots at my site were taken with this lens. I think it's excellent. It's a dream to carry compared to some other options. I had seriously considered selling mine to get the IS version, but after having the IS mechanism replaced twice now on my 17-55, there's no way I'd part with this non IS version.

I sometimes carry a 500d close-up diopter, in case I need to reduce my MFD. It's something that is easy to carry and use in the field. I shot this with the combo.

BTW, I feel that the lens is light enough that you can do without the tripod collar. They are nice to have, but I never needed one with this lens.
