    I understand that the Canon 'L' lenses are optically very good. However, I
    can not see anything wrong with the non 'L' lenses (Normal USM).

    Is it that I don't have a trained eye? Or, is the difference more apparent
    when the photo's are blown up to large sizes?

    There have been some links to reviews posted here before in response to
    this question... you don't have to look very close in a lot of instances
    to start seeing how much better the L glass is.

    Here's some more info...

    This one's got a great comparison of a 100-400mm L-series vs. the
    standard 75-300mm (same lens I've got):

    And this one compares the 17-40mm 'L' vs the 18-55mm "kit" lens included
    with the Digital Rebel:
