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

  • Summary: The Canon EF-S 10-22mm equips budget to mid-range Canon DSLRs with ultra-wide angle coverage. While the equivalent coverage of 16-35mm sounds extreme, our Gallery shows the range can be surprisingly useful in practice. For example most of us have faced landscapes, buildings, interiors or even group shots which are simply too large to squeeze into the field of view of normal lenses, or found ourselves in situations where a wall or cliff edge meant we couldn’t step back...
  • Pros: Extreme wide angle coverage., Low geometric distortion., Fast, quiet and internal USM focusing., Relatively small and light.
  • Cons: Lens hood not supplied as standard., Modest macro capabilities., Sigma 10-20mm worth considering., Incompatible with full-frame bodies.

  • Excerpt: An ultra-wide angle zoom lens for use on Canon's EF-S compatible cameras, which gives an equivalent angle of view of a 16-35mm lens on 35mm cameras.
  • Pros: Excellent resolution in the centre at most apertures and focal lengths, Light weight, Good build quality
  • Cons: May be prone to flare and no lens hood is supplied, Falloff in resolution towards the edges at 22mm

  • Excerpt: The Canon 10-22mm lens gives a full-frame view of 16-35mm after Canon's 1.6x crop factor is applied. You'll get a variable aperture of f/3.5 at the wide end to f/4.5 at the long. With Canon's Ultra Sonic Motor (USM) built in, it offered silent and very responsive AF. It's also light, weighing in at just 385g, and while this makes it portable,  its plastic build does feel a bit insubstantial in the hand.

Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM - Retest @ 15MP / Review

8 November 2008
  • Conclusion: The Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM is a very sound package thanks to a combination of very decent build quality and very good if not impressive optical results. The resolution is very high at 10mm and 14mm and still pretty good at 22mm. If anything vignetting at wide-open aperture could be better. The center performance is excellent throughout the range with generally good borders.

  • Conclusion: The Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM delivered a very sound performance with a combination of very decent build quality and very good if not impressive optical results. If anything vignetting at wide-open aperture could be better. The center performance is excellent throughout the range with generally good borders. The level of distortions is surprisingly low and CAs are quite well controlled.

  • Summary: A first-rate wide-angle zoom for DSLRs with 'APS-C' sized imagers.The 'EF-S' designation is Canon's way of labelling lenses with Short Back Focus, which indicates the distance between the sensor plane and the rear element of the lens is shorter than in an EF lens. Such lenses are designed exclusively for EOS cameras with 'APS-C-sized' sensors and cannot be used on Canon's 35mm SLR cameras - or on the EOS 5D.
