I expected more for the price.

Excerpt: I bought this 10-24mm wide angle lens because I heard so many photographers from the tutorials I have been watching, state that this is one that they usually carry in their bags for landscapes. I was about to go on my first trip to the Maine coastline and was extremely excited to try it out on those interesting seascapes. I was slightly disappointed.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Summary: I have a love-hate relationship with this lens. What I love about it is the fact that it goes out all the way to 10mm, without a lot of distortion, and zooms in to 22 mm, approximately equivalent to 35mm on a full-frame 35mm camera (which I consider to be the wider end of a "normal" lens focal length). Overall, this lens yields nice results. At the wide end, it really is great for experimenting with different camera angles to achieve dramatic effects.
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
Excerpt: When I bought this lens I was looking for a substitute wide end lens for my kit EF-S 18-55 IS II lens. While 18mm is kinda wide, the idea of a 10mm for landscapes populated my dreams. And they became a true reality. The wide end of the lens carry a bit of distortion but it`s fantastic! If you learn a bit on how to use a Ultra Wide Lens and it`s particular form of composition, the results you`ll get will be astonishing. I`m really impressed with the quality of this lens.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Great wide angle perspective shots. However it is very diffcult to get consistently sharp focus on the subject. Manual focus is a little better but not very practical. Similar problems irrespective of lighting conditions.
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight
Cons: Blurry Focus, Poor in Low Light, Weak Casing
Excerpt: The 10-22mm (16-35mm equivalent) range is fantastic from a utility viewopint. Distortion and flare are well controlled, and sharpness is more than adequate. Build quality is average for a non-"L" lens. However colour and contrast are, in my opinion, rather poor. Virtually every image requires post-processing. That is my only criticism - but it is a significant one.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Excerpt: After reading all the great reviews all over the internet about this lens, I took the plunge at the same time as I upgraded my camera body to a 7D. After all the talk about how sharp this lens was, I was very disappointed in how noticeably the sharpness dropped off of my lens outside of the center. Started doing a lot of testing after noticing this, and thought I got a bad copy. So, I sent it back for a new one (big plus to B&H for the painless and cost-free exchange).
