Pros: IS works great, sharp pictures, decent cost. Favorite part of the lens is the focal range.
Cons:
Build quality, rotating front end

I've had this lens for about 3 months and I have no regrets thus far because once I got the hang of it, I get reliable sharp pictures with lots of keepers.

I took this lens to a concert and I was very satisfied with the results I got in the low light conditions. IS definitely played a major role!

One thing I noticed is that the telescoping assembly loosened up since I first got it. When I first bought the lens, I could point it straight up or down and the lens would stay in its place. Unfortunately, that is no longer true but I'm still satisfied that my picture quality is still sharp.

Bottom line is that for the price, this lens is a great performer.
