5.0 out of 5 stars Really wide angle for EOS400, 12 Mar. 2007
This review is from: Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM Lens (Camera)
If you want wide angle and have a Canon 400d/350d this is the lens. Even with the cropping factor it goes really wide (16mm) and you can get some wonderful panoramic photos. It's sharp, with good contrast and colours and only very mild vignetting at the 10mm end of things. Compared with other (admittedly cheaper) lenses from 3rd parties this is streets ahead.

Focusing is quick and nearly silent and the lens has full time manual focus and it focuses *really* close, close enough that if you take a picture of someone near and dear to you at 10mm you'll practically have the front element of the lens touching their nose, and get a picture they won't want published! There's no IS, but for a lens with this focal range that shouldn't be an issue.

My only (minor) gripes are that focus and zoom rings are in the opposite order to 'L' series lenses and it comes without a soft case or a lens hood, and at this price I don't see why I should have to pay extra for these items, *particularly* the lens hood.

Probably not a good buy if you're planning on going full frame in the near future, but if you can afford a full frame Canon digital, the odd £500 or so isn't going to matter :-)
