Hello Photographers, Tom here from Cameras Direct with another Canon Lens Review.

Today we’re gonna have a look at the Canon EF-S 10-22mm 3.5-4.5 USM lens.

To start off, the 10-22 is an EF-S lens. That designation means it is for a Canon cropped sensor DSLR cameras. Suited to the Canon 600d 700d 70d and so on. All the cropped sensor Canon DSLR’s.

When you pop the 10-22 on a crop sensor camera the lens effectively becomes a 16mm to 35mm lens (due to the 1.6 x crop factor), so basically it’s an ultra wide-angle too wide angle zoom lens and a very handy range it is.

If you’re a landscape photographer who likes to take beautiful vistas, sunrises, sunsets, sweeping plains, waterfalls, rain forests etc this lens is going to give you my lovely ultra wide perspective and also the versatility to zoom in a little bit to crop out unwanted elements.

The 10-22 is also very good for the travel photographer who likes to take landscapes or photograph architecture as well as indoors maybe cathedrals churches things like that even stadiums where you gonna get that super wide perspective without too much distortion.

You can also use the 10-22mm for social events where you’ve got large groups of people in you want to get everybody in and you’ve only got a small space to do it. So many uses you can use this lens for.

Typical Canon quality, metal mount. The lens uses a USM “ultrasonic motor, so it’s fast and silent to focus. You have a nice zoom ring and a friction-less manual focusing ring which rotates an internal element so that the end does not rotate when you’re focusing – particularly handy if you’re using a graduated Cokin filter system or a polarizing filter.

The 10-22mm takes 77mm filters, so don’t forget to buy a high-quality Hoya UV filter to protect the lens face and obviously I’d also recommend getting a lens hood with this to help prevent flair (light entering the lens from the sides).

So folks, wonderful lens, one of our best sellers. Particularly popular with the landscape photographer.
