Overview

Canon's first 18-55 EF-S lens, whilst OK with the 300D (6MP), shows its performance limitations with newer higher resolution sensors.. If you've a choice, then go for a newer version.

This (USM) lens was available retail, the mk1 version was available in kit options and is very similar, but with a slightly different focus mechanism.
