Excerpt: I had this lens for a while now approx 2 years. The focus is very slow and sometimes it is blurry on a subject. I switch to manual to get exactly the focus I want. Which isn't that great because if the subject doesn't want to stand still, it is useless.
Excerpt: I like the extreme wide angle and find it very useful in some of my work. However, I am very disappointed in the sharpness of this lens. There is a big difference when compared to by 18-200 USM IS zoom. I was particularly surprised because many reviews praised the lens' sharpness.
Excerpt: You know, I REALLY wanted to love this lens. I didn't.The image quality was fine ... I just didn't care for the super wide angle.After almost 200 images I realized that it wasn't giving me what I wanted in my wide angle photography - a sense of being 'there'.

Summary: I've had this lens for some time now. I've therefore had alot of experience with it. The quality is very good but no more than that. I was bitterly disappointed when almost all the photos in a shoot, suffered severe vignetting as a result of using the hood.
Summary: I had one on a 550D for some time. I use Canon FF D cameras day in day out. I bought the 550D for a specific task.I found the 10-22 a bit flimsy and prone to flair. Most of my lenses are L, I would of bought L for the 550D if there had been any.Lack of quality glass in the cropped format I think...
