From the Manufacturer

The lens offers such features as a three-group floating system for exceptional close-up performance; a secondary diaphragm that blocks stray light at f/2.8, which increases contrast when shooting wide open; a ultra-sonic monitor (USM) that provides outstanding autofocusing speed at all focusing distances; a wide manual focusing ring with smooth action; and full-time manual focus even in AF mode. The first lens in its class to feature inner focusing, the lens carries a one-year warranty.

Yes, it is expensive, yet when you purchase it you should be quite pleased. It is not only used for macro photography it can be used for other types as well.
Let's talk about the differences - both of these lenses are amazing, so it comes down to what's most important to you.
The non-L lens is fantastic. I had previously been using a $100 Sigma "macro" lens: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000ALLMI8/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B000ALLMI8&linkCode=as2&tag=allofthetech-20&linkId=IDRD7EREYJNRT3C5
After switching, my product photography went from aggressively mediocre to top-tier. This lens enables you to get extremely close to your subject, perfect for product photography. It is very sharp, and the wide aperture gives you a tremendous range of depth of field.
For $550, this is an excellent lens to buy.
But there's another option. The "L" version of this lens, for $900 after rebates. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002NEGTSI/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B002NEGTSI&linkCode=as2&tag=allofthetech-20&linkId=53ETP2WETYNITTXY
The L version of this lens is UNBELIEVABLY sharp. It is the sharpest lens I've ever tried, so sharp that my Canon 6D's 20MP sensor can't render all of the detail from the lens. If you're looking for the best macro lens that you can buy, one that you won't kind of regret in a few years when you get a 50MP camera, you cannot go wrong with the L version.
So there you have it. If money is an issue but you still want great photos, get this lens. If you want to make an investment in the best macro lens on the market, get the L version. It's not always the case with the L version, but in this case the L version is definitely worth the money if you can afford it.
Hope you found this helpful,
