Also, to say that faster is more versatile is your personal opinion based on what you shoot, not the rest of us. It's just one aspect of versitility. I would hands down pick IS over a stop (go buy a light kit). And not to be argumentative, but I've never seen handheld video from 200mm that was professionaly smooth, but I have from IS.

I've not always been a Phil Bloom fan, and there are a few things I might argue about in his article, but (and I own roughly 20 lenses) I agree with him that the 24-105L IS is probably the most versitile zoom for video SLRs (besides the 28-300L), and that IS is critical for any handheld video (actually a MONOPOD is critical for any handheld video) :)

Phil, good article, good work!
A suggestion for you.... I've been nagging Ken Rockwell to write something about the best old Nikkor AI glass for Canon SLRs, you should beat him to the punch.
