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

Review Date: Mar 18, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Sharp as a tack. Great color rendition and light weight.
Cons:
Possibly a little expensive, but as others say "you get what you pay for"

I do a lot of Real Estate photography and you can't always get back far enough to get everything in the pic. I didn't think the few mm difference between my 17-40 would justify buying this lens but the first time i used it i was extremely pleased with the results and it's the only lens i use for shooting homes and interiors.

Review Date: Aug 1, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 5 

 
Pros: inexpensive
Cons:
noise, not real crisp on enlargements and the zoom creep is terrible

I have had this lens for a couple of years and just up graded to the canon 100-400 IS. No comparison, when i think of all the shots that i have taken that i thought i was satisfied with at the time, i now know that if i had the money at the time how great those shots could really have been. When i got my 20D and got those error 99 messages i have to say Sigma said send the lens to them and they would up grade it for free and they did and it works perfect but i think now it's just going to sit on the shelf till i decide to sell it. it's a bargain at the price but not if you'r taking those once in a lifetime shots. also when you carry it the lens just zooms out to it's max length unless you'r carefull
