Pros: Great build quality, good colour, awesome value!
Cons:
Not too much

I bought this lens with my 20D a few months back and I love it. I wanted to get a good quality lens (like and "L" quality) but couldn't afford $1500+ for most of the other L lenses. For the price you get a very well built lens that takes excellent pictures. I haven't noticed any issues with vignetting CA or any thing of the sort. My only complaint is that as my only lens at the moment, its a bit too wide but that is not a problem with the quality at all, I just need more lenses Smile I absolutely recommend this lens to anyone on a budget but would still like to get some good quality glass. As a final note I'll say that in general the ones who give this lens a bad review are usually those who can afford to spend thousands on a lens most likely becuase they make money from photograpnhy. For the vast majority of us out there taking pictures, money is a major issue when purchasing equipment and although this camera may not perform as well as the 16-35 F2.8 L, it is half the price, in other words you could go get another lens:)
