some people like it most don't (including me) not the sharpest not the fastest but I needed a long lens in a pinch and it was less than $200 at Target. When I first bought it I liked it but, I really didn't know any better. Some will say it is the worst lens Canon makes. If I can dig up some pics with it I will post them.
There are better lenses, for sure, but stopped down and in good light, it can still do a good job. I've been putting a fortune into good glass over the last year, but am still regularly awed by a terrific photo, and then, after checking the exif info and finding it's one of the cheapest "crummy" lenses, have to wonder if it's really worth it...

Wow Al, your lucky you don't have to worry about something like that...Around here it would of already been pawned or on ebay.
Don't I know it! I'm incredibly absent minded, and if I were back in the states I think I would have a lot less "stuff" than I do now, just from forgetting it here and there...
