Review Date: Jul 8, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $459.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: IS, weight and feel, "long' performance
Cons:
$, wide performance

I picked this up at the end of May '06 as part of a 20D package. I swapped it with the kit lens that "came" with the camera. This is my first foray into dedicated digital after over 35 years of film. I'm not thrilled with it wide, but I didn't expect to be. Most of the problems I've had, I've worked out. The lens is fine, it's the loose nut behind the camera and the cameras learning curve. This is destined to be my carry-around lens.
