Susan,

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Really solid feel to the lens, provides a lovely balance for my camera, a Canon 70D. Affordable entry to Canon's elite L series of lenses.
Bad points:
Disappointing image quality, no improvement on than my trusty (and cheaper) non L series 24-105 and vastly inferior to my 60mm prime.
