Pros: very useful general purpose range, the OS does work well, good contrast, fast focusing, a one lens solution
Cons:
expected distortion at the wide end, softness in corners, some CA when wide open

ok, I'll be first then. My wife has the old non-OS version on her XTi, and on occasions when we have been out together (like travelling) she has managed to get decent shots, while I fumbled changing lenses and lost the opportunity. And this, in my opinion, is what this lens is about: practicality.

It allows general purpose, daytime, outdoor or well lit indoor shooting hand held. The results are adequate for record shots and I would even consider printing to 12 x 8 and framing some of the results I got.

Pixel peepers and "L'prime sharpness addicts look elsewhere, and pay heaps more. Equally this lens is imho more suitable to consumer DSLR's than pro models, effectively a very good and handy travel or one does all lens (eg family shots) and a worthy upgrade to a kit lens, particularly for Canon and Nikon users where you don't get in body SR.
