Default Canon 24-70 L F/2.8

Hello, I do a lot of event photography; non-profits, historical.

I'm thinking of buying a 24-70 L F2.8 used (not the new version) for around $1,000 in excellent condition.

Is this still a relevant camera to buy, or should I go for the less expensive Tamron 24-70 with image stabilization?

Thank you.

KEH has one for $999 in excellent condition (no case, caps or hood), with a 180 day warranty and a 14 day return policy. One with case, caps and hood costs $1,179.
