Much better performance than the kit lens. Larger aperture gives better depth of field control and faster shutter speed in low light.

More expensive

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Sumptuous Glass. Sublime Images. Forget your Camera Body; 7D, 70D, 700D or 350D this lens will deliver images of stunning quality. The best step-up you will ever make on an EOS cropped sensor body camera. Beautiful!! This is the 2nd time around for me, I sold my previous 17-55mm f2/8 but found that I couldn't live without it. Seriously good lens and when I check my best-ever photos... they were mostly taken with this beauty -- a real CLASSIC lens!
Bad points:
Canon you mean tight-wads! Brilliant Lens!! But where is the hood? Maybe a padded bag too? This latest version comes with a center-pinch cover, which is good. This rating of 9 would be a 10 all day long if you wern't so tight with the hood!

Good points:
A great piece if glass! L series pro quality but without the build quality but sturdy and we'll made.
Not a lens if you are going to move up to a 6d or higher body, but even purchased for a short while, this lens maintains a high re-sale value
Bad points:
None. It is what it is, a quality lens
