I borrowed this lens from a friend to test.reviewed January 10th, 2007
I tried shooting my sons hockey game with it.
Not very happy with the results. IQ was ok,not great but ok for the price. but was a bit too slow of a lens for indoor sports. might be ok outside.

I got this as a kit lens with my 400D.reviewed January 10th, 2007
The lens is serviceable. IQ is not great not horrible.

It focuses quickly and accurately.
You will want to upgrade eventually but not too bad as a starter lens.
