And the IS version is actually the 3rd iteration. There were two non-IS versions. The first non-IS version was poor. The second was not too bad within its limits. The IS version is at least respectably sharp.

Well seeing how we are dragging year old doggy doo out of the closet I may as well chime in too.
The best advice I have seen offered is if you are a beginner to try out the kit lens and see if it works for your needs. There are some of us that pixel peep to no end and scrutinize images past the casual observer. For those types a kit lens will seldom fill the void but for others they may not be able to or simply dont care to see the difference. My wife still asks me......."Honey I dont see any difference between the regular and the HD channels, why even bother with an HD TV?" Well to me the difference is very clear and cant fathom no HD now.
