The Canon EF-S 10-22mm is a lot of fun! The expansive field of view is great for use indoors and it will give you the feeling of really being there when used for landscapes. Just keep your friends away from the edge of the frame when using the 10mm focal length! Barrel distortion is a real factor with this lens. -----FOCUS----- Autofocus is fast and silent as a ninja. The full time availability of manual focus is also nice. The focusing ring moves smoothly with a comfortable abount of resistance, and focusing the lens does not change its overall length nor does it rotate the lens filter (delight for polarizer fans!) -----ZOOM----- There is no lens creep to speak of so if you point the lens straight up or straight down it will not try to zoom on its own. The zoom action is smooth with good resistance, and zooming this lens does not change its overall length. The front element is contained behind the lens filter and moves independently of it, no rotation or extension of the filter when zooming. The entire focal length is accessible with roughly a 60 degree rotation of the zoom ring. -----IMAGE QUALITY----- Subjects in the center of the image are always sharp and true to color with absolute minimal aberration. At a focal length of 10mm there is considerable barrel distortion and aberration becomes noticeable too around the edges of the frame. Be careful if taking group photos at 10mm focal length, your friends at the far edge of the frame will look significantly wider! -----WRAP IT UP ! ----- I like this lens. Its built well, works well, and looks good! There are two things prevented me from rating 5*, first is the amount of barrel distortion and aberration at 10mm. Most people probably intend to use the 10mm focal length for the majority of their shooting with this lens- as I do. You just have to do it carefully, compose your shot with the utomst attention to all subjects near the edges. Second, the price/ value. This is a great lens yes, but its not "L" quality, and no IS tell me the price could be less than what it is. I still highly recommend this lens! Hope this has helped. Happy shooting!

This is the 4th Canon lens I have owned. I never had any trouble with my previous Canon products. After 7 months of normal use the len became very loose in the mid section. This problem is not coverd by the warranty. I don't know how often this happens or what caused problem. I was always very careful with this lens as with all my lenses.

My Go2 Lens

By 

from New York, NY.

Comments about Canon EF-S 10-22MM F/3.5-4.5 USM Ultra-Wide Zoom Lens:

I'm an amateur, and I have loved this lens from the first shot. I enjoy walking and taking in the sites, in both urban and nature settings.. This lens takes it all in. It is my first lens of choice, so that I can get the big picture, and then zoom in on details later. This lens was my first purchase to add to my Rebel T5, which I love despite what some reviews from experts might say. The camera is great for those who are new, or on a budget. I use a Rebel T5, APS-C sensor, camera, which makes the rated 10-22mm focal lengths range effectively a focal length range of 16-32mm. At the 22mm setting this lens gives you a very wide field of view without much in the way of distortion, or fish-eye effect. The images look like they were taken with a regular prime lens to me. But, at the 10mm setting you will not only get a much wider viewing angle, you will also get some subtle fish-eye effects, which I happen to like, and the picture remains sharp. I love taking pictures of classic architecture styles, art deco is everywhere in New York City, and larger than life statues, which we also have in abundance. This lens is great for capturing it all creative angles. No need for a helicopter ride to take it all in.

Best Purchase Ever

By 

from Fort Collins, CO

Comments about Canon EF-S 10-22MM F/3.5-4.5 USM Ultra-Wide Zoom Lens:

I left my Canon outside during a rainstorm for six hours or more and this lens was attached to the camera. I separated the lens and body and dried them of the condensation. This lens still works beautifully as does the body (7d). I definitely recommend this lens to anyone considering it.

Another Winner!

By 

from Wyoming

Comments about Canon EF-S 10-22MM F/3.5-4.5 USM Ultra-Wide Zoom Lens:

Canon has been my favorite tool for the photography I've done throughout the past 50 years. I started with the FTb, graduated into a full F1 system, and when digital came along used the XTi and then a 1D, and now have a 60D, which I mainly use for scenic HDR panoramas. I had been using the EFS 18-135 lens for these, and wanted a larger angle of view, but on my limited retirement income could not afford the "L" series class. I purchased the 10-18mm lens, and am very happy with the results it renders. I don't find any problem with it having the plastic (instead of metal) rear housing. The optics are excellent, as I have come to expect from Canon, and I am very happy with the value I have received for my money - Thanks, Canon!

      Comments about Canon EF-S 10-22MM F/3.5-4.5 USM Ultra-Wide Zoom Lens:

      This is one of the best lenses I've owned. It's indcredibly sharp and the color quality is first-rate. Even the lens flare is well handled, which is rare in an ultra-wide lens. As it is so wide, the photographer has to be prepared for the distortion. For landscapes and architecture on a cropped sensor, this lens is perfect. The only complaint I have is that it didn't come with a hood. Well, it was a tad pricey, too.

      Wonderful ultra wide angle EF-S lens

      By 

      from South Eastern US

      Pros

      • nice contrast
      • Sharp images

      Cons

      • not wide aperture
      • Some Chromatic Aberration

      Best Uses

        Comments about Canon EF-S 10-22MM F/3.5-4.5 USM Ultra-Wide Zoom Lens:

        I use the 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM mainly for waterfalls and small cascades in the mountains of the south east US. With a APS-C camera sensor this focal length is superb. While there is some distortion at the 10mm end for my purposes it is not objectionable. However, there is a fair amount of chromatic aberration. The lens produces fairly sharp images. The corners are less sharp. However, at this scale of image size details are small and it is not objectionable. The lens is not overly heavy, but it does have a nice quality feel and weight to it. The focus ring is nicely balanced, not too stiff nor too loose. I would have rated the lens higher for Features, but it does not come with a lens hood, and should. I would like to rate the quality higher, but the lens is not weather sealed. For my shooting near water spray, this would be great. However, the quality of the images, the size of the lens, and the price make this lens an excellent product.

        Incredible

        By 

        from Galena, OH

        Comments about Canon EF-S 10-22MM F/3.5-4.5 USM Ultra-Wide Zoom Lens:

        O.K., I was already blown away with the quality of the lens itself and with the pictures I took with it, but nothing compares to what happened to the lens over the winter. I was out shooting some nature shots here in Central Ohio where there was quite a bit of snow on the ground; somehow the lens fell out of my bag and I didn't realize it until I got back to my car. I retraced my steps all to no avail. I notified the park ranger that I had lost the lens and, still having the lens booklet in my bag, was able to give him the lens information. Well, 3 months later I get a call from the ranger. Yes, they had found my lens! Although I was happy to get it back I knew it couldn't possibly be functional after 3 months buried in the snow. I was wrong. Not only was it functional, but the picture quality was diminished in no way! No fogging, no condensation, nothing; it just works. This is just one of the reasons why I have never owned any camera or camera accessory other than a Canon!

          I really do love the range of this lens and sharpness is pretty nice. I just cannot get over how horrible the chromatic aberration is. Even with advanced post-production it is still evident.

              I got this lens to capture lightning, and landscapes. And wow, it has done all of this and more, it is the sharpest lens I own, and I love the wide angle. It is a little exspensive for a non L lens, but is makes up for it in performance. The wide angle comes in handy when taking photos of unpredictable lightning. The close focus is also good for photos of flowers. All in all I am super happy with this lens.

              Very nice lens

              By 

              from Santa Fe. NM

              Comments about Canon EF-S 10-22MM F/3.5-4.5 USM Ultra-Wide Zoom Lens:

              If you are shooting on a crop body in RAW, this is your wide angle lens. Not just for the obvious reason that it's the only EF-S, non-L series lens in the ultra-wide line up, but it is specifically designed to match the performance of a full frame with the 16-35mm L or 17-40mm L lenses. It's true! Compared to a full frame with an ultra-wide you get a similarly wide shot on a crop body, minimal distortion (warping), and a very compact and sturdy build for a dang good price. I know that for EF-S it seems expensive, but you'll feel differently after your first National Park tour with it. There are, of course, some adjustments needed in processing. I typically set the chromatic aberration correction at -33 red/cyan in camera raw when I shoot at 10mm. The glow is obvious, especially in high contrast scenes but you can tone it down as you zoom in. The quality of the shots and the build alone are worth the high price for this EF-S lens. The only reasons Canon isn't calling this an L series lens is the glass (obviously) and that it has "s" in the title. If Canon made an "EF-S L" lens, this would be it... again, with the L glass. The build quality, sharpness, focus speed, inner focusing system (that means "polarizer-friendly"), and the USM motor and focus depth window make this a steal! For outdoor/landscape shots (mainly my thing) I rarely take this lens off my 7D and almost always shoot with it wide at 10mm. If you're going to use it with a flash you're internal will cast a shadow. You must, if you use a flash at all, use an external flash with this lens. The optional hood seems silly when you first see it, but it's useful. If you go with the ball-cap-sun-shield you will almost always get a little sweatband/tattered brim in the shot... it's wicked-wide. The hood helps a great deal in most situations. The added bonus is that you won't bang your front element on all kids of stuff with the hood attached (which, if you're outside where you should be, then you'll probably do a great deal). If you spend ANY time outside, can't stand changing lenses all the time, value... value, use a polarizer, and are at all savvy with shooting and editing RAW files... this, again, is your lens. Buy it and enjoy.

                  My every-day digital imaging requirements are better suited to APS-C format sensors ... but that doesn't mean I want to get locked out of the "normal" 17-28mm wide angle shooting opportunities ... Tried a Tokina 12-24mm AT-X several years ago and it was worthless, marshmallow-soft and chromatic edge-discoloured beyond correction. Enter a truly astonishing lens, the amazing EF-S 10-22mm!!! Not enough "w's" and "o's" in the alphabet to spell the number of "WOW's!" this incredble lens deserves! Yes, at 10mm, there's no mistaking this is anything short of an ultra-wide but the actual distortion is well-corrected and I can find absolutely minimal purple-fringe chromatic aberration - even when I pixel-peep. Thought it was a wee bit expensive for a lens w/o a red stripe on the front ... but it most certainly performs every bit like one!!! No questions here: TWO THUMBS UP!!! This lens is a treat to use and to a 1.6x factor body, a real "game changer"!!!
