Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Zoom lenses are very convenient. The equivalent of two or more fixed focal length lenses in one unit. The maximum aperture of some zoom lenses changes as you alter the focal length, but through-the-lens (TTL) metering takes this into account to give correct exposure.

With its effective focal length range of approximately 16-35mm in 35mm format, the EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM is a remarkable lens with outstanding image quality that will take your photography into new dimensions and areas of dramatic expression.

The super-wide zoom not only gives you the freedom to get exactly what you want in the shot, it dramatically alters perspective to allow for dynamic expression. The lens allows you to get extremely close to subjects, exaggerating the difference in size between a near object and its background.

Creative photographers can use this phenomenon to create excellent separation between subject and background for a strong sense of presence, or for a pan-focus effect with everything from foreground to background sharply in focus.

Exceptionally light and compact for its focal length range, the EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM also has an incredibly close minimum focusing distance of just 24cm.A ring-type USM works in concert with the camera to provide super-fast, precision auto focusing and predictive tracking - with full manual override available at any time.Designed specifically for digital photography, the lens has specially shaped lens elements and Super Spectra coatings to suppress ghosting and flare, which can be caused by reflections off digital camera sensors.

An exclusive optional lens hood can further reduce the incidence of flare.A circular aperture provides a pleasing background blur when shooting with a wide aperture; ideal for creating a sense of depth and getting your subject or model to stand out from the background.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good, ultra wide sweetness 20 May 2011
By N. Gratton TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Explaining the name of this lens:
Canon - manufactured by the same people that made your camera. They'll work together perfectly.
- EF-S - only works on APS-C "crop-sensor" cameras - for example the 600D, 550D, 60D, 50D and 7D, as well as some older models like my own 20D
- 10-22mm - on your APS-C camera this gives a field of view equivalent to 16mm on a full-frame or film camera at the wide end (ultra wide angle) down to 35mm when zoomed-in (a regular wide angle lens).
- f/3.5-4.5 - maximum aperture is not that great. Particularly being a wide angle lens, it won't be easy to achieve narrow depth of field if you want it. It's also not going to very good for shooting indoors in ambient light, or even outdoors for freezing action in dim conditions. (If you really need a faster ultra wide angle lens, consider the Tokina ATX 116 PRO DX AF11-16mm F/2.8 Canon)
- USM - the autofocus motor works quickly and quietly - especially if compared to the kit lens that came with your camera.

This lens is manufactured using the same high quality glass Canon uses for it's professional "L" lenses. (However it does not carry the "L" identifier as Canon do not apply this to EF-S lenses.). As it doesn't carry the "L" identifier, Canon don't bundle the lens hood - and with a lens this wide you really need one to prevent peripheral light sources from degrading the contrast and colour definition of your image. Canon's offering is expensive (Canon EW-83E Lens Hood For EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM, EF 16-35mm f/2.8 L U, EF 17-40mm f/4.0 L USM) but you may find cheaper 3rd party alternatives.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent super-wide solution for EF-S mount 21 April 2007
By brainleek007 TOP 500 REVIEWER
This lens was created to fill the hole in Canon's range for a super wide angle lens for their range of EF-S mount DSLR's.

Fortunately, since it inhabits a unique position in the range, it is a superb lens and there is no real alternative (from Canon anyway) that covers the same focal lengths.

It's not an L lens so don't expect weather sealing and and lens pouches/lens hoods in the box. Do expect a very well built lens with excellent image quality.

The lens has a very close minimum focusing distance of 24 cm which can be useful for odd effects at the wide end of things. The zoom and focusing rings are smooth and well placed. The lens takes huge filters (77mm) which can add a lot to the purchase price but should be considered essential as the front element is very convex and should be protected. A useful tip - get the slimmest filters you can for this lens as the lens is so wide angle standard filters will cut off the corners a fraction in the frame.

Image quality is excellent. DOF is almost a non issue with this lens as even at minimum aperture and focusing distances greater than close range everything seems to be in focus. There is no appreciable increase in sharpness when stopping down either like you get with some lenses. I leave mine at around f5.6 all the time because I read somewhere that this is the sweet spot for the lens (it's all sweet but apparently this is marginally sweeter). There is a little bit of colour fringing that can creep in for backlit subjects but nothing that can't be edited out and it's par for the course for a lens of this type. What is probably better than normal in terms of performance is the lens' control of flare which is very good. I haven't had flare in my shots even with the sun in the frame.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this lens! 2 Oct 2010
Hi all, if like me you have spent the past 3 weeks deliberating over whether to buy or the sigma or the tamron, x, y or z. Then my advice is buy this! I read on many forums over the past weeks that the sigma 10-20mm lens is a superb piece of kit coupled with an incredible price. However, a regular theme amongst said forums was that the Sigma lens could be hit of miss with some optical abnormalities present which were solved by returning and replacing said lens until such abnormalities were no longer present.

By contrast many forums raved about the Canon 10-22mm lens and it's superior optical representation of the subject being photographed. The down side often read that the price was prohibitive resulting in several purchased the Sigma equivalent. Only to regret this decision and they had wished they had saved/spent that little more for the quality that is assured and synonymous with Canon.

Anyway, my ramblings aside... I bit the bullet and plumped for this lens. It arrived this morning via special delivery and the excitement was tantamount to euphoric... so it was with trembling hand that I finally replaced the kit lens of my 500d...

The euphoria that ensued was delightful. The difference this lens makes to the camera's range is simply incredible. The artistic abilities are equally astonishing and landscape vistas must the seen to be truly appreciated. The quality of the shots also is much improved on the 18-55mm kit lens. The image appears less 'noisy' and sharper. A little shy of 600 is a considerable investment for a lens, that for me is a very expensive hobby. One that I continue to enjoy and have had the coals of enthusiasm fanned considerably by this lens.
