Horrible Chromatic Abberration
6 November 2013
Conclusion: I really do love the range of this lens and sharpness is pretty nice. I just cannot get over how horrible the chromatic aberration is. Even with advanced post-production it is still evident.
Pros: Fast auto-focus, Superior build quality, range

L.ILYES, Rate it all!

Summary: I'm sure this is a fine lens, but I never got a chance to use it. I own a Canon EOS 5D and, apparently, "EF-S" lenses are not compatible with it. Only "EF" lenses will work with the EOS 5D. I didn't realize that until I received this lens and (believe it or not) read the instructions before opening the plastic. This was not evident to me from the description, but now I know.
I hope this comment saves you some time and money if you own a 5D. Please ignore the rating.
Summary: The fisheye effect seems to only be noticeable in certain settings and not in every single picture. But when it does show fully, its amazing! And regardless if the wide angle is as drastic as wanted, the glass on this lens is unlike any other lens I have!
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Easy To Clean, Sharp Focus, Strong Construction
Summary: I just bought and returned the EF-S 10-22. I was "upgrading" (or so I thought) from the Sigma 10-20. The only advantage I could tell from the canon was possibly a little faster Auto focus compared to the sigma (not a big deal for me). As for image quality and build - the sigma won hands down! Needless to say I wish I had not sold my sigma now, and will be buying a new one soon. If you are in the market for a UWA, get the sigma.
Pros: None really
Cons: Hood cost extra, not very sharp, Subpar build quality
Summary: I was so excited at the thought of such a flexible ultra-wide zoom, but have always been a little disappointed with the reality. Build quality is decent, but the sharpness is just so-so across the range. Some degree of chromatic aberration is probably unavoidable at such short focal lengths, but the 10-22 is truly awful at the wide end. With some judicious post-processing in Adobe Lightroom (etc.
Great camera but wish there were better instructions with it.

Summary: I bought this camera and accessories on advise from a travel adviser. Not having anyone local to help me (I live in country WA Geraldton) I am having great difficulty following the instructions in the online tutorials. I can take a photo and use the magnifying things but so far all the technical things elude me. Wish there was a book on Canon SX50HS for Dummies. Hopefully I will be able to operate the thing before we take off on our European holiday 19th June.
Summary: cet objectif reste à ce jour le meilleur compromis en photo ( vidéo) sous marine. Utilisé en DSLR il permet d'évitr au maximum les tremblements. Son point faible étant l'ouverture, on arrive très bien à compenser cela en jouant sur la sensibilité des iso. Le choix est donc judicieux pour qui souhaite avoir un grand angle de qualité et polyvalent dans sa besace.
