Summary: So I looked through several, several lenses and read through dozens if not a hundred reviews, and here's my impression. I was looking for an affordable lens to use almost exclusively without having to switch between lenses. I needed auto focus for quick moments, because I'm ocd about manually focusing and need time to catch the shot. And I don't exclusively shoot stills. Auto focus- it's so, so poor.
Summary: Awesome lens for my T4i. I bought a camera body only so this is now my "90% of the time" lens. Quick auto focus and good quality images. The lens body feels a bit cheap and light but for the price it's understandable. I would buy this lens again and recommend it.

Summary: The regular lens for my Cannon died on my trip to Russia and I was able to get it to work somewhat by playing with the focus, but I was not happy. I have a Tamron 75 to 300 so I was not sure I need another zoom lens with this range, but... WTH! I shopped and shopped and well, this was such a good deal I had to get it. So I got this lens and WOW! 18 to 200 is a heck of a range.
