But in practice I found this lens just too slow (in terms of aperture) for general vlogging purposes. Unless you want your face very deformed, you end up using it in the 14mm and above range, where the aperture drops to f/5.6. Meaning all indoor footage turns out either extremely grainy or under exposed. Even at 10mm and f/4.5 it's still quite dark. So unless you are planning to vlog in full daylight only, I can not recommend this lens.
For photography it's not even worth considering, it is not a particularly sharp lens and the step motor offers no benefit in photography. In the same price range you can get an older model lens, with USM motor (or no motorized AF at all), but sharper glass and/or more aperture instead.
For a really cheap vlogging solution on Canon APS-C cameras, get the Canon 24mm f/2.8 pancake lens and screw a $15 wide angle converter lens on it. You will get a wide enough angle (just about), with blurry edges but good enough center focus. Enough to keep you going until you can afford the holy grail of APS-C vlogging, the weather sealed Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 AF.
It took me a little longer to notice the next drawback, but reviewing my photos after shoots, I was seeing that the lens has considerable barrel distortion in certain shots, probably mostly at the wider focal lengths. Some photos have a slight fisheye bulge to them where straight lines appear to curve. The attached picture of the bedroom was taken at 11mm - you can see the distortion on the door on the right edge.
The one very nice advantage it has over the 10-22mm is that is more consistently sharp from edge to edge across all focal lengths. I'd always get a few shots with my 10-22 that really faded away into dullness on one side, but this never happens with the 10-18mm.
If paper vs metal isn't critically important, you just might LOVE this lens. I know I do! Super fast focusing. Super quiet focusing. I usually use manual focusing but this lens focuses so accurately and quickly, I don't have a need to auto focus.
The size with the Canon EW-73C Lens hood projects a very diminutive profile making it a very quick to deploy lens no matter what type of camera carry system you use. I use the BlackRapid Double Strap System, Peak Design's Quick Release System, and the Peak Design Wide Strap. The lens doesn't set the lens off balance at all, no matter how you carry it.
As to the images, because certainly that is most important to me; I've used VERY expensive lenses of this focus length and the Canon EF-S 10-18 STM is VERY comparable at a far lower price.... I mentioned the ease of auto focus and that my preference is manual normally, but if one uses the manual focus it is super fast and easy because the auto focus ring is awesome!
I wish I found this Lens sooner! I mostly shoot wildlife and landscapes and I am a total amateur, but I really enjoy photography, and this lens REALLY creates an incredibly shallow bokeh. This can be a great feature when shooting portraits. You do have to get pretty close to your subject though, but if that doesn't disturb your subject, shoot away!
Enjoy this lens, I know I do!
I bought this lens only for some specific pics I needed, and I was actually pleasantly surprised.
REMEMBER to turn the camera's peripheral light correction ON (it's a setting in the menu).
Tests by professionals have it frequently as the best in its category/price. IF you need a very wide lens, one of the best choices.
Four stars for missing a better manual focus for night photography. But it does focus perfectly with very little light, as long as you have enough contrast.

+Has Image Stabilization (works fantastic) & STM Focusing (superbly silent & smooth)
+Light weight and costs pennies. (Doesn’t translates into being a cheap lens tho)
+Focuses very very close (a boon for creative wide-angle shots)
-Narrow apperture limits low-light use (Tokina 11-20 is the go-to for this, but also costs 3-times as much)
-AF Speed is moderate and STM struggles in hazy conditions.
Things to note:
Shooting at 10mm creates a distortion that is the highlight of ultrawide focal lengths and cannot be corrected in post-processing. Take a look at the photos before getting this lens. Ultrawides are not recommended for casual landscape shooting. Get the 24mm focal length lens instead.
I will say, if you are still worried (at this price) about corner to corner sharpness, vignetting & barrel distortion you are spending way too much time reading and not enough time taking pictures. If you are taking pictures dead on perfectly straight brick walls to see barrel distortion, not only do your pictures suck, you have way too much time on your hands. Equipment nowadays is way better than most non-professional pictures takers anyways. If you cannot take good pictures with this lens, you are doing something wrong!
My only suggestion, this lens is slow at max F4.5. If you are shooting indoors such as Real Estate or Churches you need a tripod. This is not a lens for stopping action indoors. Get a 24mm F2.8 (or something) for taking pictures of your kids. When shooting landscape, you are shooting ~F8.0 or higher anyway for depth of field, this lens is perfect for that. The Image Stabilization on this 'slow' lens is a really great inclusion as it is useful and needed handheld.
My first day out, 15km group hike, weather sucked (no sun), running from picture to picture with no time to think, came away with some fun, interesting pictures that are totally shareable. As time goes on, good weather, have more time to compose shots and 'understand' wide angle, it can only get better from here. Some might say my photo's are mediocre and they would be 100% correct but I am doing it, and sharing it nonetheless. It would not be fun otherwise (T1i camera, first day 10-18mm IS STM).
[Update] - added some more picture (sunset/buildings) once weather was good. The top of the sunset sky almost right above me (wide angle at work). Note the lens flare, this lens is not immune.
The extra field of view you get with this lens is really good, I love being able to fit everything in frame without having to constantly backpedal.
Attached images are 18mm (shortest you can get on the kit lens) and 10mm (widest you can get on this lens)
