The lens offers fastest SLR zoom aperture and coverage of standard wide to tele zoom range on full frame or from normal to portrait/telephoto on APS-C DSLR, and that's all in a very lightweight (for the speed and the focal length range of course) and inexpensive package. Macro focusing is also a good bonus. What else does one need from a standard zoom? It is a little softer (but not blurry) at f/2.8 and quickly improves when stopped down, even at f/3.5 it's better and at f/4 it's already tack sharp. I also noticed that focusing in low light may be hit and miss, while e.g. my EF-S 18-55 and Sigma 18-50 / 2.8 still focus confidently. A great value for money anyways. Especially consider this lens if you're shooting portraits using zoom or need a fast zoom for available light photography.
