    Cons: Not suitable for low light conditions. No lens hood provided.Come on Canon, time you started providing the lens hood along with the lens

    Pros: IS is good,worth the money. Overall performance is good

    Summary: A good lens to own, since Canon is providing it as a part of the package when buying a 600D. Completes the kit.

    Cons: Sarpness / price Decent Macro Performance (but noa a true macro lens) Fast autofocus (comparing to kit lens)

    Pros: Build quality is PLASTIC Rotating focus ring and filter Slow autofocus in comparison with faster L lenses

    Summary: A very good "firslt" telephoto, it's got decent quality and focus speed for its price. Nevertheless, those Pros, familiar with the blazing fast autofocus in the 70-200mm L and their stunning quality, may found this a bad lens
