Pros: Good zoom, it's the one that u want to have in your camera all time. Very Good Wide Angle. Awesome Image Stabilizer (I can take pictures up to 1/30 and they are very sharp)
Cons: In the borders have little shade sometimes (nothing that u can't correct on photoshop). Don't have a USM motor (standard motor sounds loud), but still pretty fast focusing.
Overall: This is a standard zoom lens, I'm not a professional photographer but I consider myself an Average type of photographer. I use a Rebel XSi and you can make a very good crops of the pictures because with this lenses zoom and the 12mp working together the results are awesome. Don't spec the quality of a Canon L lense but its really good one.
I don't regret for buying this lenses. I recommend this lenses for a normal photographer who like a good zooming, wideangle, lense lock, and the best Image Stabilizer which automatically detects when u're paning.
Some examples of my pictures of airplanes with this lenses are:
Note: Both of them are edited on Photoshop CS3 but just to saturate and sharp a little bit. Almost all my pictures are airplanes so always they're moving, and works perfectly. Have a Marry X-Mas

The product arrived on time and intact, and all the extra stuff that came along with the lense was extremely handy, specially the filters that changed the saturation of the pictures quite a bit. The lense was great and since I am really into depth of field, it functioned exactly the way I wanted and made the pictures look very soft with shallow depth of field without requiring to do alot of zooming in or out,not to mention the image stabilizer which gets sharper pictures. Excellent lense, just a little heavy, but the pictures make up for it.

Bought this lens for my vacation trip to China. That's all I need, the polarized filter very helpful with China weather climate.
The zoom ring lock lever made my live much easier, just had to remember to unlock when ready to shoot again. Last but not least,
the price is the best deal.
