Great price, great optics on an ultra-wide zoom from Canon
Love it. Was reviewing ultra-wide-angle zoom lenses for my T3i. Have always wanted something wider for landscapes and interior shots. By accident I came across a new press release on this lens from Canon. Saw the low list price on genuine OEM Canon optics and took a quick trip over to my local camera store for some hands-on impressions. A few minutes later I left with one. Have been very happy with its optical performance so far. I am not a pro shooter so the fact that is has "kit build" ...
Help choosing an UWA for my 7D please.
I need help choosing an UWA for my 7D. I am off to the USA at the end of July (Grand Canyon, etc. etc.) and I thought it might be nice to go with something wider than my EF-S 17-85. The choices seem to be: Canon EF-S 10-22 F3.5-4.5 Canon EF-S 10-18 (due out soon) Sigma 10-20 F3.5 (I would pay the extra for this over the 4-5.6) Tokina 11-16 F2.8 Tamron 10-24 F3.5-4.5 I think I should exclude the Tokina. It's the most expensive because it goes up to f2.8 but I don't think I need that. A few reviews of the Tamron suggest it is a bit softer than the other option so maybe I can discount that one as well. So that leaves Sigma and Canon. I suppose my initial preference would be the Canon 10-22. It already available so I would get more change to try it before going that if I waited for the new 10-18 and it has a marginally larger range than the Sigma. Does anyone have any thoughts that might help. Thanks
I'd suggest the 10-18mm. It's already out, and many forum members here have one already. In fact, I got mine yesterday (a day early; was supposed to be delivered today). I've not taken any shots with it yet, but I played with it for a few minutes and was quite surprised with how fast and SILENTLY it focused. If the image quality is as good as everyone says, then it's a steal at $300. Continue Reading
Your first choice is the best one > Canon EF-S 10-22 F3.5-4.5 ....my next lens. Hoping to get one for under $500, used / refurbed, of course. Fish Here's a couple taken with my buddies 10-22 > Continue Reading
