Pros: Very sharp, perceived build quality, versatility
Cons:

Did lots of research as most have and am happy to say this is one sharp lense. Colour is also fantastic to my eyes. Good feel in terms of quality and feel. Originally wanted a Canon of similar range but could not justify the 2x cost (CDN$) for little to no visual difference. I am fairly new to digital SLR but not to digital so am able to make an informed judgement. Works great on my 20D and the wide range is as wide as I would care to go at this point. The other end works beautifully and provides sufficient overlap for my other soon to be purchased lens. All in all a very good walk-around lense if space is a premium in your bag. Sharp all the way through, user error being the only determinant. Mine has a 50th anniversary emblem on the lense cap if that means anything.
