Summary: It's also a sensible move for Canon to introduce what's effectively its first intermediate EF-S kit lens. Previously it was a big jump in price from the basic EF-S 18-55mm IS to either the EF-S 17-85mm IS USM or its successor the EF-S 15-85mm IS USM.
Pros: Flexible 7.5x range zooms 2.5x closer than basic kit lens., Effective Stabilisation with 3 stops in our tests., Metal lens mount and non-rotating filter mount., Affordable step-up from basic kit lens.
Cons: Soft in extreme corners, especially at larger apertures., Noticeable vignetting and geometric distortion., Loud AF motor, and MF ring rotates during AF., Some creep between 20 and 85mm (actual).
