Good points:
Reviewer left no comment
Bad points:
I have two other canon lenses and they are both great but this one takes a ridiculously long time to auto-focus. I wouldn't be surprised if it was a fake Chinese rip-off!!

Paul, Papamoa, NZ Amateur Photographer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Good versatile lens that covers range of focal lengths without need to continually change lenses.
Bad points:
Only problem i have is lens extends out when hanging from strap which makes it a bit more susceptible to getting knocked around.

Pavel, Toulouse, France

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Zoom ratio big enough; quite sharp when stopped down. Really good stabilisation comparing with Sony's A700 matrix shift one. Fast, exact and quiet focusing. Reasonable price. Finally, it's very beautiful :)
Bad points:
Chromatic aberrations are strong enough except when focal distance is around 80-90 mm. But well correctable in the RAW converter. When wide open, a good part of corners are quite blurry so you need to stop down if you're shooting landscapes/cities. Construction seems to be quite fable + the zoom is not smooth enough, very noticeble when you zoom while shooting a video. The "proboscis" falls out while inclinated down. Flare sensitive, so you should buy a supplementary hood (why isn't it in the kit with the lens?).
