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. This 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. 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.
Super wide angle for APS-C sized sensors
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.
Beyond human perspective
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.
Small, light and close
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 conjunction with the camera to provide super-fast, precision auto focusing and predictive tracking - with full manual override available at any time.
Designed for digital
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 the camera sensor. An exclusive optional lens hood can further reduce the incidence of flare.
A circular aperture allows for 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.

I have bought this lens for landscape photography. I was very impressed by its quality. The lens is as sharp as a pin.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Canon 10 to 22mm
With an equivalent focal length of 16mm in 35mm terms it borders on being a fisheye lens, yet shows no severe signs of barrel distortion. Lines are surprisingly straight near the edge of the frame. Feels solid.

The next level
About Me Getting started
If you are getting downhearted with landscape shots then I recommend this lens for a cropped sensor camera. So far so good and starting to enjoy photography again

Worth every penny

Really good lens for landscapes and street work. Gives a whole new dimension to your images with the ultra-wide field of view. Care is required with camera shake due to the fact that at the edges of the image the slightest movement will create blurr - this goes against the focal length and shutter speed rule that usually applies. It is caused by the exaggerated movement around the periphery of the image especially when panning up and down. Some reviewers have interpreted this as a lack of sharpness in the lens, which is not the case at all.It is possible to shoot at very slow shutter speeds handheld, provided you are not after detail in the sides and corners. Its good for catching people unawares too, as the FoV is so wide they have no idea they are in shot.Light, compact, reliable USM focus, and in the right hands, capable of some really unusual images.
Perfect lens for that little bit extra
I bought this lens to avoid objects being cropped due to me having to stand too close to them. It works well in tight places to get the whole object into the viewfinder and also great for landscapes.

Not for me
About Me Professional
I had one on a 550D for some time. I use Canon FF D cameras day in day out. I bought the 550D for a specific task.I found the 10-22 a bit flimsy and prone to flair. Most of my lenses are L, I would of bought L for the 550D if there had been any.Lack of quality glass in the cropped format I think holds the format back.Not a dreadful lens by any means, just not an L. I like a constant aperture and this lens is slowish even at the wide end.A step up from the lens that came with the camera. No doubt good value for the money but there should be something better to choose from.I would recommend it to some people and others I would not.I got rid after the job and the 550D just takes up space in the cupboard.Cropped viewfinders and lack of decent pro glass are not for me.

About Me Semi-Professional
As a Photography Student good lenses at a fair price are very important to me, and this lens is perfect in my growing collection. It's not too heavy and is great for larger landscapes - a good price for a quality lens.

I've had the lens for few months now and have used it at several weddings, for interior commercial work as well as for my own shots.I'd say it's not a general use lens. For all it's nice and wide (use it in portrait and you'll get your own feet in the shot) it's NOT as sharp as L glass and has it's drawbacks. The Good.....Really wide. Currently the widest lens Canon make so if you have to have the widest thing going this is it. There have been times where this lens has got me shots I couldn't get with anything else. If I have to make a choice between getting an OK shot or not getting a shot at all I'm going to take OK every time.Style. Because it's so wide you'll get converging verticals. These will be most pronounced when the lens is at it's widest and there are straight lines near the edge of the frame. This gives a very distinctive look and feel to a shot, which can be good thing. There again it can be very bad.You need to pick your shots carefully.The Bad....Sharpness. Or should that be the lack of it. I've taken identical shots with this and a 17-40 L and there is an obvious difference. I use Lightroom and I can tell which shots came from which lens without having to use the 100% function. Having said that it's an OK performer.Speed. Maybe it's just me but I thought this would be a 2.8. It has a 77mm filter like the big boys but needs a bit more light. I find this restricts my use of the lens. Things it does well it does really well but but you'll probably have to play with this for a while to get used to it. I'd recommend this lens but I'd make sure they'd had their hands on one before buying.

Needs loads of light or high ISO
from newcastle upon tyne
Fantastic lens, but it needs loads of light to do its best, Onboard flash is too directional, too centred and it hits the top of the lens when too close up. Outside or in a studio location it would be perfect for big group shots ike a band but not for family shots where detail is the key. But i love it, looks crazy with the lens hood on, it looks massive! high recomendation but dont expect `L` series resuts, expect 90% perfect quality.
