PhenomGood all around lens for the SLR.

Voted 4/5

With a decent focal length this lens has, it has been a great compliment to the EOS T2i. The image stabilization works well, the build quality decent. Also the overall size of this lens isn't too heavy or bulky compared to some of the larger lenses with longer focal lengths.

The main drawback I've found with this lens is often it will extend itself outward, more so in colder weather for some reason. Though not a huge drawback it can be an issue at times.
