Hey guys, can anyone advise me on the performance between these two lens? I suppose L-len will produce sharper image. However, it seem that 70-300 IS outperfom L-len if shoot with handheld? Anyone use these two lens before?

To have sharp image, do you think the 70-200F4L len should shoot with tripod rather than handheld?

Thank you for your advise in advance ;p..

Get a 55-250 and save up for the 70-200 f4 IS. The difference between the 55-250 and 70-300 is not great enough to warrant the $ difference. I'm sure some people can hand hold 200mm at 1/60, but for the majority of us a telephoto lense without IS is useless in lower light conditions without a tripod/monopod.
