This lens seems to have everything: great price, image stabilization, light weight, compact build, surprisingly good test results, and a max magnification down to 1:2.5. What more could you ask for?
At $175 (street), this digital-only wide-to-normal standard zoom offers Canon EOS Digital Rebel shooters image stabilization for only about $35 -- and 1.3 ounces -- more than Canon's non-IS kit zoom. A 28-90mm equivalent, it isn't designated as a macro, but with a maximum magnification ratio of 1:2.5 (tested), it could be.
