Pros: Quality build, USM, IS, sharp photos
Cons:
heavy, corners show vignetting, AF in low light

I bought this lens with my 350D. It's served me very well for 6 months. The USM is very quiet and usually pretty accurate. It does struggle a bit in low light, it's easier to manually focus in that situation. IS is wonderful, I can get crisp shots sometimes up to 1/2 second. With the camera's built in flash, the lens will cause a shadow across the bottom of the image. Also, theres noticeable vignetting at higher focal lenghts.

Overall it's a great lens, well worth the money. It's does well for macro, portraits and landscape photos. A great all around lens.
