Pros: price, weight, size
Cons:
autofocus hunts in low light

I'm new to the DSLR world, so take this for what it's worth. This has become my "walk-around" lens for outdoor shooting. I love the added range. Compared to the low-end Tamron and Sigma super zooms, the Canon is by far the best value. The IS is great. Don't even try to shoot without a tripod without the IS on.

The AF does hunt in low light, though. Like anything less than full sun. Not a major deal, just be aware of it.
