Pros: Price, zoom range, decent autofocus.
Cons:
Not the sharpest lens I've seen, but respectable for the price.

I bought this lens to replace the 18-55 kit lens on my 300D. I'd say that their quality is somewhat similar in the 18-55 range, but obviously this Sigma has more reach, and I believe it gets sharper at longer lengths. I can confidently say I am glad I did not go with the Canon 28-105 f/3.5-4.5 or pay a lot more for the Canon 28-135 IS.

The lens itself is somewhat heavy.. not uncomfortable, but it's noticeable when you first try it out. I think it would be well balanced by a battery grip, but I did not have the grip on when I was testing it out.

I highly recommend this lens as a general walkaround lens for people on a budget. I think you will not be disappointed.
