Review Date: Sep 5, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $84.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Great ability to take indoor shots in low light
Cons:
None, for the price what is there to complain about?

I received this lens in the mail one day after my xti and it has replaced my kit lens ever since. I should have purchased a body only. This thing is great for indoor photography. I have a newborn and I cannot believe the shots that I am getting. Great in low light, great background blur, very sharp. I have used at 1.8 all day long with no problems and 2.8 is rock solid as already stated. The only con to this lens is that it will make you wonder where you can find the next hidden canon gem for less than $100. If you know where, please let me know. As stated earlier, if you don't have this lens you are really hurting yourself.
