comment:I used to use this lens quite extensively when I bought my 7D. Mainly because it become a ~35-160mm (35mm equiv) and I shoot quite a lot in that range. It is very light and yet sharp lens and great for travelling purposes.

One thing about the lens is the feel, feel somewhat plasticky (just me).
