Excerpt: I haven't used this lens much, but so far I have been very pleased with it. It seems a little heavy, but I need just a single lens to carry on travels. So far I have nothing bad to say about the lens.

Summary: This lens is great and I appreciated the fact that I was able to register my lens - something I was worried about since it came in a white box (meaning the set was broken apart). It is heavier than my other lenses, but I expected that based on the reviews. I loved the accessories as well and would definitely recommend this lens bundle!
Excerpt: This is the lens I use for client or personal use and I only want to bring my APS-C Canon 50D. An older camera for sure. But also regarded as the last true pro-am X0D cameras. For possibly any APS-C Canon cameras, this can be a lens you can use for many occasions. Two things I like most about this lens: Color IQ and focal length range. Images are clean and vibrant. I can use this lens in a pinch for any paid client work.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Versatile
Excerpt: I am a high school photography teacher and yearbook adviser, so I take over 40,000 photos a year. I use this lens with my 70D. I was hesitant to buy it because I thought the image quality would suffer with such a wide variable range 18mm-200mm. I was wrong. I love the quality at all focal lengths. Yes the lens is heavy, but I don't care. It beats having to remove and change lens when I don't have time. My new favorite lens for any situation.
