Pros: Image quality and F2.8 for the price.
Cons:
Slow and noisy autofocus, especially in low light conditions, slight flare during night photography

I have use this lens for approximately a year and it's been on my 350D almost permanently. It was also the first lens I bought when I went to digital from my old Minolta...

After taking around 4000 pictures with it, I can say that the image quality is very good. Not quite at the same level as the L lenses I got after but, considering the price, how could I complain?

Image quality was good, no BT, colour was excellent. No complaints about the built quality or the glass.

However, this lens has a mind of it's own! It took some serious taking use to. The auto-focus is noisy and slow. It searches for focus in low light. That's why I took most of my low light pictures manually...

But like I said, at that price, you can't complain.

Considering that it costs about a quarter of an L F2.8,
it's a great lens for the price.
