As good as it gets
For a kit lens, this is pretty much as good as it gets. I've sold hundreds of 20x30" prints of a photo I shot with this lens. It may not be fantastic at all apertures or have the most pleasant bokeh, but if you're one of those people who likes to get mostly everything in focus, need a weather-sealed lens for an absolute steal of a price or just want the generic kit-lens range with appalling aperture range (28-80 f/5.6-8.5 equivalent) then this is pretty much the best you'll find from any manufacturer.
Just my two cents.
