I based my opinion on my own experience having owned both lenses & the fact that I read every review of the 70-300L

You do realize that sample variation could account for the very slight differences being debated here.  These lenses are both so good, I feel its pointless to even bother debating sharpness.

1 other pro for the 70-300L I don't think has been mentioned is that has a generation newer IS system that is supposedly more effective

Sorry that's incorrect.  They are both 4 stop IS with a 2 mode option.
