Quick clarificatio question

Do you mean the "18-55" (Non-stabilized) is underrated?

Or the "18-55 IS" (stabilized) is underrated?

The former was "OK", but nothing to write home about, by kit standards; but the latter is generally recognized as being a bit better optically - especially stopped down. I know my IS version has served me well until I got the 15-85 IS for Christmas.
