Is 1 stop worth $1200 to you?

Not in this instance. I have the f/4 L IS version.

If I really need speed, an extra prime could fill the bill for less than the extra $1,200.00.  For instance, I would rather have the 100mm f/2.8 LIS macro plus the f/4 zoom than the f/2.8 zoom alone. If I couldn't stretch the budget to the macro, I could have a very inexpensive 85mm f/1.8.
