The EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM is Canon’s ultra-wide angle zoom for its APS-C format DSLRs. Optically it’s a solid performer, with decent sharpness and minimal distortion. The ring-type ultrasonic focus motor gives fast, silent focusing and allows manual adjustment at any time. Like Canon’s other non-L series lenses, the hood is an optional extra.

The best lens I own
I must say after owning first wanting this lens, could not afford it and then getting the Sigma version of this, I had to return the sigma due to performance issues and plunge into my pocket for this lens and there has been no turning back yet. One year later countless of travels with it, countless of shots with it I am really happy with it and its performance. It took me a while to master it and wield its power but it was well worth the wait I love this lens. When I was first shopping for ...
Canon EF-S 10-22mm
its a great wide angle for cropped factor cameras... sharp and good colors!
Great lens, not without its drawbacks
Pros: - Excellent range for APS-C format, 16-35mm equivalent. For a long time was my #1 travel/architecture lens - Good build quality (albeit a long way from "L" lens quality) - Light, a great "walk around" lens. Cons: - Higher priced than it should be by about 20% in my opinion - Sharpness adequate only - Contrast low. Virtually every shot requires post-processing - Small maximum aperture makes it fairly useless as a portrait lens - Moderate distortion at extremes of zoom range (although ...
I bought a 2nd hand Canon 10-22mm and I'm noticing spots on my images. Should I be concerned?
Here are some sample images: http://imgur.com/a/kia7q  I bumped the contrast/sat/clarity on a couple so you could see it better. There is usually one spot that appears to move around on different shoots. lll be honest it is driving me nuts. Is this normal? The lens appears to be in excellent condition. Should I try and get my money back or is this somewhat normal and I am just being picky? The image inside the house is at f/8 and the others I believe are around f/11 or 13.
Yup, nothing to do with the lens, it's dust on the sensor. Continue Reading
Which Lens to buy/recommend? (Canon 650D)
Hi, I'm a relatively new hobbyist with photography. I currently have the Canon 650D w/ the included 18-55mm IS II Kit Lens. I am fairly happy with the quality from it when taking family portraits and foodtography, etc. I'm now deciding on which lens to purchase for my upcoming trip to Hong Kong. While my 18-55mm does the job. I thinking of going for a wider lens. Though I'm not too sure which one to go for. The purpose of this purchase may seem a little odd or stupid but I want to be able to: (1) Take self-portraits with my mother and myself (hand held - i.e. arms stretched out without using a tripod); while maybe maximising the background/environment (The Symphony of Lights)? (2) Take a few landscape / architectural shots of Hong Kong and the crowded streets , markets, etc.

I've been happy with the Sigma 10-20 f/4-5.6, however I don't do night photography. And night time can be more challenging.

Canon 17-55 instead of 15-85. Will I see any difference?
Hello. After some searching, I am about to purchase a mid-zoom lens for my Canon 700D. I mainly shoot landscapes. Portraits do not interest me that much. What I need to know is whether the 17-55mm lens will be noticeably better compared to the 15-85 lens. The practical benefit of the 15-85 lens is that it could be the only lens I need for landscapes (going below 17mm) as well as for general use. It is also lighter and doesn't suffer from dust issues as the 17-55 does. Here are the crucial factors: (1) Sharpness from center to corners (2) Vignetting (controllable in-camera?) (3) Color rendition (4) Overal image quality (5) Good IS Constant f/2.8 is probably not such a great benefit for me as I rarely shoot portraits and mostly work in daylight situations and if I want everything sharp, I should stop down from f/2.8, so the aperture benefit is lost. If I go for the 17-55, I will ...
Did you even read the OP post? The only reason to get the 18-35 is its its constant f/1.8, and OP is fairly sure he doesn't even need f/2.8. OP also states that 17mm is not wide enough for him, and you suggest 18mm? Barrel distortion is easily corrected, either in-camera or in PP - just apply the lens profile. IS is the same 4-stop as in 17-55. 15-85 does look like the best option for OP. Continue Reading
with lightroom lens correct, and not wanting to carry tripod, 15-85 IS would be best one lens solution for crop And scrapes, particularly between 15-24 instead though, carry tripod, and get 10-22 first- very low relative distortion for ultra wide get 35 f2 IS - scores highest resolution, 14 mpix, on your body get 55-250 STM - I got mine for $184 Continue Reading
Based on the information you've shared, the 15-85 is the natural fit for you. You've said you don't need wider than 15mm and that you won't be shooting wide open. Truthfully, there's very little benefit (if any) to the 17-55 and there's a BIG downside, 2 actually: cost, size. The 17-55 is more expensive, larger, and you'd likely end up purchasing an UWA for the 2mm on the wide end you're missing and want to have which means you'll be switching lenses more often (not an inherently bad thing - unless you're doing it for no benefit and there was a solution which didn't require it). I recommend checking out PhotoZone.de and comparing the Imatest charts. Their reviews are generally VERY good and thorough (both are tested on a 50D and thus, the results are comparable) 17-55: http://www.photozone.de/canon-eos/425-canon_1755_28is_50d 15-85: http://www.photozone.de/canon-eos/465-canon_1585_3556is The 17-55 may be slightly sharper at similar focal lengths and apertures, but it's big advantage ...
