11. Summary

Pos:

  • great image sharpness in the center of the frame,
  • very well corrected astigmatism,
  • very well controlled distortion (as far as straight line breaking is concerned)
  • solid functioning and quiet autofocus,
  • sturdy build,
Cons:
  • large vignetting in the whole focal length range and even after stopping down the lens.
  • chromatic aberration specially visible for 10 mm focal length
  • slightly too large coma
The Canon EF-S 10-22 mm is a specific lens targeted for wide angle lovers and for those not wanting the fish-eye class of lens distortion. APS-C detector digital camera owners had to wait long for the opportunity of photographing at a wide angle of 100deg or more. Thanks to the Canon 10-22 mm this became a possibility and, it seems, was worth waiting since the picture quality is very high. If we add Canon's famous good quality build and USM motor we are looking at a lens worth taking into consideration.
