Pros: Price, wide range, flexibility of uses
Cons:
Weight, Weight, Weight, size, oh, and it weighs a lot

This is a great lens for all around range and if you can only take one lens. I took it traveling for 7 months when space was an issue, and it was fantastic. I accidentally dropped my camera and it didn't dent or break. Really tough lens. Built like a tank, and weighs almost as much as one. It really gives your camera a hefty feel if you like that.

It does not take as sharp pictures as good Canon glass. You really get what you pay for when it comes to most lenses, and although it has been very good to me, I wish I had spotted for another $200 and gotten the Canon 28-135 IS USM.

Overall, a very good value lens.
