Pros: Price, Weight, 3rd Gen IS
Cons:
Not a full ring type USM, A little noisy but not too bad

Overall this is a pretty decent lens. Much more affordable than the 70-300 DO IS USM, and the 3rd gen IS really works well with my shaky hands.

It's not an L series lens but $600 for IS USM and this focal range it works pretty well. I've been pretty happy with the image quality and it appears pretty sharp at all focal ranges, occasionally getting a little soft at 300mm (most likely due to my shaky hands).

Best part is that by buying this lens I get another $100 off my D20 and a total of $30 back for the lens, so it's only a $486 addition to my existing setup.
