- Excellent optical quality and true wide-angle coverage with select digital SLRs
- Superior AF performance and speed, with full-time manual focus by simply turning ring
- Close-focusing to 9.5 inches -- fill the frame with subjects as small as 3.6 x 5.4 inches
- Relatively compact size and light weight for an ultra-wide zoom lens

Top Customer Reviews
It works well for landscapes also, but I feel like the further and more expansive the landscape is, the more the photo suffers from blurring. I have tried taking some cityscape shots and they did not turn out nearly as sharp as they did using a prime lens. I have noticed some vignetting on this lens as well. On a Canon Rebel T3i, this lens is so large that it blocks out a portion of the built-in flash, so if you don't have an external flash and you plan to use this lens in the dark, that's something you will need to take into account as it is quite noticeable. This lens doesn't perform very well in low light situations unless you are using an external flash, taking a long exposure or using light painting techniques.
Finally, this lens utilizes the EF-S mounting system, which only works on APS-C sensors. If you're planning on eventually upgrading to a camera with a "full frame" sensor, you will not be able to use this lens on that camera.
CONSTRUCTION: My initial impression was it's a little plasticy and zoom and focus rings are slightly coarse and stiff. After a year, it loosened up nicely but is still a notch below the smoothness of my EF-s 15-85 3.5-5.6 IS USM. However, it's light and petite: easy to slip in a coat pocket and ideal for travel or hiking. The metal mount and polycarbonate barrel make it durable yet lightweight. The front element moves slightly during operation so a UV filter is needed to seal the front from dust.
AUTO FOCUS: Ring-type USM drives an internal lens group and, thus, AF blazes and is silent to human ears. The front element doesn't rotate during focus and zoom operations. It has FTM, allowing manual focus without switching out of AF mode. This AF design is optimized for stills and not ideal for video: the built-in mics on my 60D and 70D picked up a high pitched stutter from the motor and contrast focus is jerky during video recording. The workaround is to use an external mic and/or focus manually. If video is your main thing, buy the Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM instead as the STM drive is stepless and silent to the camera mic.
OPTICAL PERFORMANCE: Basically, this lens features optical quality of an L series wide zoom in a prosumer barrel. Wide open, this zoom is sharp and contrasty in the middle of the frame with slight softening towards edges. The wide side is the sharpest with slight degradation as you zoom towards 22mm. Sharpness across the frame improves as you stop down. By F8 it is pin sharp from edge to edge. I'm going for increased depth of field for landscapes and cityscapes, so I leave this lens at F8 most of the time. I only shoot wide open for occasional low light snaps.
Distortion is well corrected. There is a wee bit of barreling at the wide end and slight pincushion ate the long end. But less distortion than my EF-s 15-85 3.5-5.6 IS USM and a little better than the 17-40 4L USM. Like any wide angle optic, you need to compose carefully to avoid perspective distortion, e.g., noses appearing too large or buildings falling over.
Chromatic aberration is a reality with zooms and this one is not exempt, with magenta fringing along high contrast edges. e.g., tree branches against a bright sky. However, it is mild and easy to remove in DPP, LR or Aperture. In normal light you will never notice magenta fringing.
Flare is well controlled for a zoom: no problems with sunsets or streetlights. Nevertheless, a lens hood is recommended for protection and to shade the front element from glare. Speaking of hoods...
HOOD NOT INCLUDED: The recommended EW-83E hood is bulky and (looks like a dish) and costs $32. Worse of all, it's so shallow it offers little protection. I have an EW-83H that came with an EF 24-105 4L IS USM. The bayonet mount is the same size as the EW-83E but the hood is longer and narrower, offering increased protection. I thought the longer length might vignette but, amazingly, it doesn't vignette at any focal length, has better protection from glare and less bulk than the EW-83E. If you're going to spend money on an expensive hood for the 10-22 3.5-4.5, get the EW-83H instead of the EW-83E. If you're on tight budget, check out the Vello EW-83H clone/knockoff.
LAST BLURB: This zoom is a specially lens and a bit wide for casual use. After all, 10mm covers 107 degrees! Nevertheless, I reach for this lens to shoot cityscapes, landscapes or in tight quarters. It has ideal coverage for spacious cathedrals or mammoth train stations. If you need an ultra wide zoom on APS-C, this is among the best in terms of image quality: sharp, fast to focus and easy on the shoulder.
I understand there is a newer model with a shorter range but new STM focusing that is better for video. My lens focuses fine, quickly and accurately enough to easily make very nice images although I don't do much video. At this range I think a fast USM focus would be overkill.
Overall I'd have to say it's my favorite EF-S lens. It makes for a great walk around and indoor lens. I need to go wider more often than closer and 10-22 is a great range to cover. This wide I don't miss IS or a faster aperture, even in low light, and just love shooting with this lens. Once it's on, I seldom reach into my bag for another lens.
The fact that there is a new version with STM means you can get a copy of this one cheaper, but maybe that's a point of criticism if you're looking for one.
The one real downside is that at the widest there is noticeable distortion which goes away very quickly, completely gone at only 12mm, maybe less. I'm not that picky but it's enough for me to call it the only real downside and take away a star.
If you are interested in this lens you won't be disappointed.
