Pros: Incredibly sharp, incredibly light and small, great colour, AF accurate
Cons:
Feels light and cheap (obviously)

Just bought this on a whim after picking up an SL1 kit, and it was 50% off.

I was simply blown away by the sharpness, colour rendition, and quality of this lens. It is so phenomenally small and light for the range, that if you don't need f/2.8, it's hard to imagine a better compromise.

This lens won't be leaving my kit!

Pros: Size, weight, overall performance
Cons:
Wish it were "faster"

Took this lens with me on an Antarctica trip, coupled to a 70D most of the time, and found the combination excellent. The equivalent focal length of 90-400 was perfect for picking out subjects from a bobbing Zodiac, and the weight was never an issue climbing in and out of the boat. Very impressed with the results from this unheralded little gem. I have also heard that the previous non-STM is just as good optically. Do not hesitate in trying this out, and ignore whatever you may hear about the plastic mount - it works and functions beautifully.
