Super-compact and light, this lens is compatible with all EOS cameras and ideal for digital SLRs when used on the EOS Digital Rebel, it's equivalent to an approx. 90-320mm lens. The 13-element design's new optical coatings are optimized for digital cameras. It focuses down to under 4 feet (1.2m), and its Micro USM-powered AF is faster than ever, due to new electronics within the lens.

I have gotten pretty involved in photography and some of Canon's more expensive lenses, but it started with this one. The longer range is OK, but not great for kids sports - a 300mm long end is better - even with a 1.6 crop factor camera like the Rebel XTi or 30D. This lens is a nice range for travel and general family events. Light and compact.
Completely satisfied. Highly recommended.
I use it for astrophotography, with great results.
