Pros: Great Image Quality, Attractive Price
Cons:
28mm wide angle limits opportunities, struggles to focus in low-light

It was the first lens I purchased after I received my camera. I purchased other 3rd party lenses after this one. However, the image quality from this one always rose above any other lens. Images were sharp.

My frustration was the 28mm wide end. When I took indoor photos, I was surprised with how limiting the wide angle was. I purchased a 24-105 and the 4mm difference was significant. Also, I didn't like how much the lens would work to focus in low light. This resulted in many candid photos being missed.

It would make a very nice travel lens and it has enough reach for certain portrait shots as well.
