70-200 f2.8

Been saving for one for a long time but I'm wondering if going up to the L glass is really worth the money. I'm not going to go away from a crop sensor body, so full frame isn't a big deal for me. I definitely can't afford the 70-200 f2.8 IS from Canon, but the non IS is sort of affordable. I saw the Sigma lens at around $1000. Is it worth saving more money and getting the non IS canon lens, or spending a little less for a third party IS lens?

What are you planning on shooting?

A quick test at the shop last weekend seem to indicate that between the sigma glass and the canon glass the quality seem the same. Even though the canon glass is a bit quiet-er. I feel that the boken on the canon glass is more of what I am looking for, also for me, shooting at 6400 ISO - in door, the image from the canon glass seem warmer (i am not sure how to describe this, basically the skin tone seem more lively).

Keep in mind I was comparing the canon 70-200 ISII and the Sigma 70-200 with Optical Stabilization.
