Pros: f1.8, price, size and weight, focus speed.
Cons:
Nothing to report so far.

An amazing lens for the money, a little long for indoor shooting on a 1.6 crop but I'll get over it.

Pros: Contrast and sharpness are amazing
Cons:
Might seem heavy to some, somewhat short and not super wide on 1.6x crop

Coming from a point and shoot camera this lens blows me away everytime I look at the images. Somewhat weighty but not bad, I carry it mountain climbing along with the XT and the weight is negligable. Price wise I think its perfectly priced. On a 1.6x crop its not terribly wide but wide enough for landscapes (26mm or so) and it seems short at times but a few steps forward can change that.

As my first lens I think its a great starter L at a decent price.
