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
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Lens Creep, Too Much Noise

Noisy AF motor in video mode

  • Excerpt: I have canon eos 70d and was disappointed to hear the loud AF motor noise in my video shots, so much so that I can't use them. Great in photo mode.

I love it and hate it at the same time

MacMike, Amazon
22 November 2013
  • 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.

Horrible Chromatic Abberration

Len, Canon
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
  • Cons: Semi-sharp images, chromatic abberration

They say zooms are like small blankets

  • 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

Disappointing

jkhatri, B&H Photo
21 November 2012
  • 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

You're paying for the Zoom Range

B&H Photo
12 August 2012
  • 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

Fun lens, but not blown away

DBAR Productions, B&H Photo
23 May 2012
  • 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).
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
  • Cons: Soft at wider aperatures, Soft wide open
