Conclusion: Good all-around general purpose lens, versatile enough for many situations. Relatively light weight. Good for a walk in the woods because it can capture a decent wide-angle landscape shot, yet still take a great close-up photo of an object along the trail, such as a flower. Limited zoom means it cannot get a close-up of distant wildlife, so if that's your target, you will need to consider a different lens.
Pros: lightweight, takes good photos at night, wide angle
Summary: This is the starting point for everyone, and while the Newer usm versions with IS are cool, I like this one more, im a sucker for simpler tech. You have to really work this lens, alot of things can be learned with it.
Excerpt: My old lens of this type lasted 15 years of traveling around the globe. It is light and did so well for so long. I'm glad to have another, but this time around I got a case for it and vow to use it religiously so the lens will last even longer and I will need to clean it less frequently. Get one!
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Good for travel, Lightweight
