Great lens, great price!

I paid 199€ for this lens. It´s a little bit more expensive compared to the standard 18-55mm from Canon, but the Sigma is worth it. All zooming and focusing happens inside the barrel of the lens, you get a larger aperture than you get in the standard from Canon, and you get a free lens hood. The OS works well, and gives you the same advantages that Canon´s IS gives you. Up to four stops of extra shutter speed.
This lens improves in several steps: 1 Everything happens inside the barrel. 2 Metal mounting. 3 HSM gives you quick and pretty silent focusing. 4 Free lens hood.
And a great thing with the Sigma lens is that it is made in Japan, and that´s just a bonus if you ask me.

Problems:

None so far.
