The EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM Lens from Canon is an ultra wide-angle zoom lens with dynamic expressive capability and a lightweight build for all EF-S mount digital EOS cameras.

With an effective focal length range of approximately 16-35mm in 35mm format, 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. An Ultrasonic Motor (USM) provides fast, smooth and quiet autofocus action and manual focus override in the One Shot AF mode enables precise focusing at all times.

Designed specifically for digital photography with APS-C size sensors, the lens has three aspherical and one Ultra-low Dispersion elements to minimize aberrations and Super Spectra coatings to suppress ghosting and flare, which can be caused by reflections off digital camera sensors. An optional lens hood can further reduce the incidence of flare.

Uses optics designed to take full advantage of the small APS-C image circle and short back focus in EF-S lenses. Offers the 35mm focal length equivalent of 16-35mm.
Features three aspherical lens elements (two types) as well as a Super-UD glass element for minimized aberration high image quality at all focal lengths.
Optimized lens coating minimizing flare and ghosting prone to occur with digital cameras.
Ring-type Ultrasonic Motor (USM) provides ultra-quiet, super-fast, precision auto focusing and predictive tracking.
Circular aperture diaphragm produces brilliant out-of-focus characteristics.

    This is a high quality lens. Auto focus is very fast, accurate and quiet. I have used similar Sigma lenses and have returned them due to inaccurate/slow/loud auto focus. The 22mm side is actually very useful. The colors are vibrant, and details are sharp. You will get some vignetting but that is easily fixed. Buy this lens and you won't regret it.

    I have had 2 copies of this lens. The first was excellent in its color rendition/quality. The second was so-so in both of these categories. For nearly $900 this thing should be built like a tank, but it is a flimsy joke compared to an L quality lens. I have a 24-70 f/2.8 which is ultra-sharp and built like a tank ... and I got my second 10-22mm along with it ... and the difference in quality/craftsmanship just made me sick. If this was a $500-650 lens, I could see it. But to charge nearly $900 for a lens that is a plasticky-feeling lens next to an "L" level lens is just wrong. The price is NOT B&H's fault, but Canon's. This lens can produce nice images (at least my first copy did), but the build quality is a joke at this price point. If the price was $300 less, it would make sense, but at nearly $900 I would personally just save a few cheese more and just buy a true "L" lens.

      Comments about Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM Lens:

      This is an excellent wide angle lens for a crop sensor camera. I purchased this lens for real estate photography and it works exactly as I expected it to. Pictures are clear, sharp and have minimal distortion even at 10mm. The distortion is easily fixable using Lightroom or Photoshop. I was surprised at how close you can get to objects with this lens and still be able to focus. Great value and a great wide angle lens for crop sensors!

      Comments about Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM Lens:

      On my 7D this lens is great. I use it for landscape photos and am very happy. The cost of the lens is also a great selling point.

        This is a great lens. It will be handy for those shots where you cannot back up far enough to capture the entire scene you're hoping to get. For landscapes and architecture. I've taken some practice shots and am now really excited about taking photos in Italy, Greece and Turkey! It is lightweight and very easy to use.

        Comments about Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM Lens:

        You know what they say! Buy Canon lenses and you'll have them forever. Well, I've had several enthusiasts tell me this. I'm a beginner
        Through and through. What ever you do get a Canon. But most of all get a Canon lens you won't be sorry. Thet last forever and the quality is
        The best. So far, I haven't been a bit sorry. I've been slowly ramping up my gear. So e of the pro stuff is expensive, but well worth it. You get what you pay for. If you plan on upgrading your body, make sure you can bring your lenses along. This friend was wrong about that. I just me a neighbor who is also an enthusiast. Ge just made the jump to the pro series. He gave away all his lenses. Ever seen a grown woman cry over something silly? Now, I have your attention. This lens is awesome. Get one for your collection. Multi-functional, great quality!

            Comments about Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM Lens:

            I almost didn't get this because I've been going with L lenses for the past few years but I've been pleasantly surprised by this lens. I have a 7D and wanted to start shooting real estate interiors. The 10-22 gives me 16-35 which works great indoors and compliments my 24-105 nicely. Quality is great. The only thing missing is the red ring.

                              This is a great lens for land/cityscape photography. It's ultra wide angle so you really get a lot into a shot. This lens gives great clarity with the minor exception of slight softening at the very corners at 10mm. Pictures, however, come out very vibrant.
                              This Lens is light weight and quite functional. I recommend this lens if you want great wide angle shots and don't want to spend the big $$$$ for an L lens.

                                      Comments about Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM Lens:

                                      I bought my first dslr camera, a Canon T3i with the 18-55 and 55-250 lenses. I thought those weren't good enough, so I bought this 10-22. I LOVE IT, it became my prime lens, I use it almost for all of my pictures except the long range ones, were I obviously need the 55-250. It is great for taking photos in tight spaces were you can't take the camera any further, so the wide range becomes very handy! I was a little scared about the price, but when I saw what other lenses I could buy for this price, I was glad i bought this one. Just a must. The only bad thing is the aperture, not so good, but I can't complain, in the end, it's not an L. But if you use a tripod, there will not be a problem, I use it to get long exposures at night and it is simply outstanding.

                                            For the price, it can't be beat for landscapes and interiors. Tack sharp.

                                            This really is a great lens. I wanted something in the ultra wide range and this lens (at its current price point) is a steal. The build quality is great, very similar to L lenses. I would have rather purchased a 8-15 L however the price disparity makes the 10-22 much more attractive. This is only the case if you can live with an EFS lens though. I find myself leaving this lens on because it is just so fun to shoot with.

                                              Admittedly this is my first wide-angle lens, so I cannot compare it with others, but extensive tests with it indoors and out have produced excellent results. I have taken a series of interior shots of the rooms in my house under normal lighting conditions, without flash, and exterior in the Epping Forest nearby, allowing for large panoramas as well as confined spaces. Mechanically the lens is very fine, optically excellent. One can only complain unrealistically about the size and weight, though they are well within the norm for medium-sized lenses, such as my Tamron telephoto.

                                                  I use this for sporting events, landscapes and will use on upcoming weddings. It's not too heavy, and so far, haven't seen any distortion. Although I purchased this as more of a novelty lens, it is much more useful than I thought.

                                                  I have canon eos 70d and was disappointed to hear the loud AF motor noise in my video shots, so much so that I can't use them. Great in photo mode.
