Pros: lightweight, versatility, good optical quality (1 stop down), zoom range. ideal for travel. Better is 18-200 DC.
Cons:
18-125 vignetting, 18-200 is better. At 18mm slight CA. At long edge ocassionally front-focused (if you auto focus twice, its OK; simply half-press shutter release twice, next fire)

Good universal zoom for travel. Excelent zoom range. 18-125 vignetting, I recommend Sigma 18-200, it has no vignetting (and better range).
Sometimes front focusing at long edge. Simply try focusing twice, it helps (maybe bad settings in focusing servo feedback - little gain in difference apmlifier).

Surprisingly good zoom for everything. If I can have only one lens, it is Sigma 18-125 (or better 18-200, which I bought now).
