Pros: Great build, 2.8
Cons:
not sharp

After reading all the glowing reviews of this lens on here and other websites, I decided to purchase this lens. Whether it was user error or a bad copy of the lens, I could not get a decently sharp exposure with this lens. I had it mounted on a tripod with a Canon Rebel T2i.

Obviously other people have had better luck with this lens than me. I returned it after a week.

Pros: Fairly sharp, great range for a crop camera, IS, good colors
Cons:
variable aperture

This lens is a great buy for any crop camera. It's not weather sealed like the L's but it has some weight and feels like a high quality lens. Color reproduction was great. Good saturation on the Rebel T2i.

This lens will give a novice photographer the confidence to continue in this hobby. Great as a walk around lens.

If it had a constant 2.8, it would be $500 more and called the EF-S 17-55.
