The Canon 2042B002 EF 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II Zoom Lens is a standard zoom lens designed with Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer technology while retaining the compactness and lightness of previous models. Its stabilization allows sharp hand-held shots at shutter speeds up to four stops slower than otherwise possible. It consists of 11 elements in 9 groups and uses an aspherical lens element to correct aberration for excellent image quality throughout the zoom range and a circular aperture for exquisite rendering of out-of-focus backgrounds. Without a lot of size, weight or cost, this lens expands picture-taking possibilities any time slow shutter speeds are needed.
From the Manufacturer
Equipped with Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer (IS) technology, the Canon EF-S 18-55mm II standard zoom lens is ideal for just about any application. IS technology compensates for camera shake by providing the equivalent effect of a shutter speed up to four stops faster. This allows you to take sharp handheld shots even in low-light conditions--a must for sports and nature photography. The lens also offers an aspherical lens element that corrects for aberration, thus producing a topnotch image throughout the zoom range, and a circular aperture that exquisitely renders out-of-focus backgrounds. Despite its minimal size, weight, and cost, the lens expands the picture-taking possibilities any time slow shutter speeds are needed.

If you are planning anything more, I think you are going to want a better lens, and Canon has some wonderful ones.
I'm a novice to photography so there are probably better lenses out there, but this one has performed beautifully for me, and it was well worth the price (it was like 40% off at the time).
Pros: Super-Sharp Images, Compact Design, Light weight.
The Lens Construction has 11 elements in 9 groups. The biggest thing I like about this lens is the wide angle of view of 75° 20' - 27° 50' - That's pretty wide and real useful in taking indoor face shots or getting the whole group shot in frame.
I am not a big fan of AF on this lens or most of Canon lens. It seems to work too slow vs kicking it in manual and just doing it myself.
The one and only con I have is working in low light with hi ISO settings, this lens craps out sooner then the other lens I own.
All in all if you have an Canon EOS DSLR i would defiantly have this lens in your photo bag.
