Very good all around zoom
2

Does about all you can ask of a superzoom.   Very usable wide open, plenty sharp stopped down, fast focus, good stabilization, fairly compact and light.  Like any superzoom, copy to copy variation tends to product more so-so examples vs. pro grade lenses.  But if you get a good one, this lens is a keeper for Canon crop DSLRs.

Now in 2020, prices for this lens second-hand are incredibly low.  Makes this lens even more of a bargain.
