Great in some ways but not perfect.

Excerpt: I'm using this lens on a 70D to do real estate photography. I love how little distortion this lens produces (the type that makes walls look curved). I do wish the lens created crisper images though. I've read that this lens is supposed to be a good as the EF L lenses, but not the one I got.
Excerpt: This lens DOES NOT have image stabilization, so its uses for landscapes and street photography is poor unless you use a tripod. I have yet to use it for anything darker than a partially lit room but so far I cant imagine the quality in darker places to very good as it is only a F3.5-4.5. As it is a 650.00 lens, its clearly not an L series, so you will not get the best of the best quality. The build quality is much better than my first and even second lens.
Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
Excerpt: This really is a great lens. I wanted something in the ultra wide range and this lens (at its current price point) is a steal. The build quality is great, very similar to L lenses. I would have rather purchased a 8-15 L however the price disparity makes the 10-22 much more attractive. This is only the case if you can live with an EFS lens though. I find myself leaving this lens on because it is just so fun to shoot with.
Conclusion: I use the 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM mainly for waterfalls and small cascades in the mountains of the south east US. With a APS-C camera sensor this focal length is superb. While there is some distortion at the 10mm end for my purposes it is not objectionable. However, there is a fair amount of chromatic aberration. The lens produces fairly sharp images. The corners are less sharp. However, at this scale of image size details are small and it is not objectionable.
Pros: sharp images, nice contrast
Cons: not wide aperture, some chromatic aberration
Excerpt: I shoot video with a Canon 70D and this lens makes a great addition to my other lenses- Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM Lens, Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM Lens and Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Lens. I would like the lens to be faster because I am often in low light situations but I don't think that exists- definitely not for this price. For the price, I think this lens is great. Wide, beautiful, good stuff.
