I purchased this lens (EF 55-200mm f/4.5-5.6 II USM ) with the kit lens when I purchased my XT. I was dissapointed with the lens and eventually sold it for a third of what I paid for it. The lens was not very sharp. It has the slower type of USM focus, but was fast enough for me. The build was very poor, I just didn't like it.

I have replaced it with Canon's 70-300 IS and Sigma's 24-70 F2.8 lens. I still use the kit lens for landscapt photo's where I don't use it wide open. From what I have read, Sigma or Tameron both have len's in that range that are better at about the same price.
