Yes it's a lovely lens, feels better built than the standard kit lenses, quite heavy, and optically very good, it's on my camera body 90% of the time.
Some say it's the nearest thing to an L lens without being an L lens.
I've never been lucky enough to own or use an L lens so can't vouch for that, but I'm very happy with it, yes it does have some problems like chromatic abberations and distortion, but that's to be expected from any zoom lens, and is easily corrected or reduced in Lightroom, or Canon's DPP.
Can't see why it shouldn't suit your 450D. I've used it on a 30D and now my current 60D and balances nicely on both bodies.
