Thanks, OP. I recently picked up a Canon T2i and at this price I couldn't resist getting this lens, which got pretty decent reviews.
It is probably the best zoom lens for the money. I have it and have been waiting for the new 100-400mm L to replace it with so i can improve the quality and reach, but obviously there is a huge price difference. this one is still great for the price though. Far better than the 75-300 in terms of picture quality.
