Pros: Wide angle, versitility, good build quality
Cons:
Expensive, not so sharp

Had the 85 1.8 and the 135 2L. Needed to cover the wider side and went looking for a zoom to handle it. The focal length fell into my setup perfectly. The 10-22mm was good and sharp, but i want to step up to full frame some day and don't want to toss half my lenses. This zoom has good picture quality, though on the soft side. Color rendition is not as good or as vivid as my 135 2L. Does the versitile focal length make up for inferior (to primes) picture quality? I already have a bag stuffed with good primes, so I really don't want to fit two more in there to cover 24-70mm. Besides, I don't do a whole lot of shooting in that range anyway. So for me the versitility wins out. Overall it is a good lense and worthy of the "L" lable. A definite step up from any other non "L" zoom in the range.
