Since you only have the 18-55, my answer is YES indeed.
Only caveat is: beware, this is a gateway drug to faster and faster expensive primes ! Canon knows that and this is the reason its price is so low ! :p

I learned something new ! I aways thought it was the cheap plastic and parts that made them price it so low :D.

I thought that too, but then discovered an incredible fact...

I compared a 35L and it's about the same cheap plastic + a $2 metal mount, and its plastic hood costs about the same as an EF 50/1.8 !

It should be clear now: what you preposterously call cheap plastic is actually a secret alien polymeric resource, formed by crystallized black tears of an extinct life form who lived in the previous big-bang universe. Only Canon knows where the warp gate is located. Their spaceships travel light-years to gather this ultrarare material.

Now this clearly justifies the price of the 35L and its hood, and makes evident the fact that Canon sells the 50/1.8 at a big loss to get you addicted to fast primes.

There has to be a trade off.

There's no free lunch...

I'll bet my 300 2.8 will float. I'm going to try this in my bathtub first thing this morning. Since I'm not much of a swimmer, this would be a great help next time I want to do some underwater photography.

Sure will. I hold the patent on Unobtanium, and Canon licenses it from me. Now, I'm going after this guy as he gave away my secret.
