Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM

EF10-22
Review Date: Oct 20, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $650.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Very sharp at 10mm. great contrast and colors.
Cons:
no hood included

Another lens with 'L' lens image quality without the L designation. Low distortion at 10mm. Some CA's but as expected from any lens with this focal length range. Very fun lens to shoot - brings your photography out of a creative rut.

 
Canon EF-S 17-55 f/2.8 IS USM

l217_efs1755
Review Date: Oct 20, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,015.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Very sharp at all focal lengths. 'L' quality pictures without a question. Doesn't feel cheap at all - feels solid. IS is top-notch
Cons:
Expensive. No hood included for a lens this expensive.

This is without a doubt an 'L' quality lens as far as image quality goes. It surpasses my EF 28-70 f/2.8 L lens in sharpness, contrast and color rendition. This lens lives up to the hype it has received. I took it to the OC auto show the day after I got it to test the IS. I took about 300 pictures total, all with IS on as the lighting inside the venue required it for apertures past 2.8. Every single one with the exception of maybe 10 were very sharp. I was shooting at f/8 all the way to f/16 to get all of the car in focus and I was getting keepers all the way down to 1/3 sec. Very happy with this lens
