Review Date: Nov 22, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $175.00 | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Light weight, USM, 58mm filter size, performance for the price.
Cons:
Zoom creep! my only real complaint.

I must have an excellent copy of this lens after reading some of the reviews below. Mine is wonderfully sharp when held steady in decent light. Pretty nice bokeh on mine too. Only real complaint is that the zoom creep drives me crazy. I think its one of the best bargains out there, since I see them on the B&S forum all the time for $130-$200. If you need sharpness and speed and a metal body, then you have to buy the L-glass. If you can't afford any L-glass, then this one is worth looking at if you can get a good copy.
