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

EF10-22
Review Date: Nov 7, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Lighweight, sharp pictures, opens up new composition possibilities
Cons:
Expensive (even I had waited for its price to drop), doesn't come with a hood

This is my third EF-S lens and my fourth lens since February this year. I first had the EF-S 17-85mm together with the 20D body. Then I had the EF 70-300MM DO, then the EF-S 60mm Macro, and finally I have decided to invest in this UWA just hours before my trip to Japan three weeks ago. I must say each new lens gives me some new surprises. I love them all. The shop that sold me the lens in Hong Kong didn't have the hood in stock, but I was able to get one in Osaka. It's angle of view is so wide, it does requires some getting used to.

Pictures at <a>href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/rodkar/sets/1314522/" target="_blank">here</a> (except my self-portraits which were shot with my cameraphone) were all shot with the lens. Some of them have to be cropped to correct distortion errors though (that's the time I wish I had 12million pixels to work with). All in all, an excellent lens. I read its price is dropping in many parts of the world, I'd recommend it to everyone with EF-S compatible body.

Pros: Very sharp images. Light to handle.
Cons:
Expensive.

I have researched the EFS 60mm lens on this website. And thanks to you guys informative reviews, I have purchased the lens yesterday. This is only my 3rd lens to go with my 20D, my first DSLR. I couldn't wait to try out the lens at the shop I bought it and at home last nite. I have posted the initial shots I took with it at http://www.flickr.com/photos/rodkar/sets/577514/ . I have not done any possessing on the pictures. Pictures are very sharp. I am very impressed with it.
