I just bought one, did not go for the 'stabilized' version as I was warned by several articles.
What can I say but: It actually has less CA than the Nikkor 18-55 it replaced, is as sharp and much brighter of course. And if you think you really need the stabilizer, look a the picture 'my birthday candle' in my PF, it was taken handheld at 1/15!
Conclusion: grab one while they are still around. IMHO a very useful lens with very minimal distortion.

Gets a vote of approval from me. At that price point I think it's one of the shrewder purchases for crop-sensor DSLRs - I use one with my 60D (also the non stabilised version).
I tried the non stabilised version first and had slight focusing issues,so I thought I'd give the stabilised version a go, (I also like to take non-flash interiors). After I tried the VC version I was absolutely sold - superb sharpness and colour, and I am able to hand hold at 1/4 sec.
Just goes to show that if you get a good match between lens and camera, test results don't always tell the whole story in the real world.
