I have been waiting to get this lens for over a year, and finally caught a killer deal ($318.00) at Circuit City's "going out of business" sale. This lens is AWESOME!

It opens a whole new world of shooting. Highly recommended to everyone.

Pros: Price, improved image quality, IS, better caonstruction than the kit lens, faster focus.
Cons:
a bit plasticy, plastic mount.

So I just picked this lens up today, and so far am very happy with my purchase. The pictures I have taken have been much better than the kit lens (contrast, sharpness, and color), and the focus is noticably faster. The constructiuon is not the greatest, but it all holds together and is much improved over the kit lens.

I won't even throw out the "L" word because that would be a unfair comparison (like so many others do). I am comparing this lens to the kit lens and the other consumer lenses in this price range. I hate when the first thing someone says is, "Well compared to "L" glass...) This is not "L" glass and should not be tested against "L"

I would strongly recomend this lens to anyone who wants an IS and get good quality pictures from your camera, without paying an arm and a leg for a lens. For the price you cannot go wrong, and it comes with a warranty, so what's the problem?
