Up until now, there haven't been many truly wide angle zoom solutions for Canon's APS-C sized sensors. This lens changes that picture, but at a price. But if you need a high-quality wide to medium-wide zoom for your small sensor format Canon, you...

The Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM lens is an ultra wide-angle lens compatible with Canon APS-sized sensor DSLRs, like the Rebel XTi and 40D. The lens is equivalent to a 16-35mm zoom on a 35mm format camera. The consensus among reviewers is that it...

The Canon EF-S 10-22/3.5-4.5 is a very good lens. There is a little corner softness wide open at 10mm, but overall the image quality is excellent. Those who claim that this lens shows “L” quality performance may not be wrong.

Highly Recommended

Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM


The EF-S 10-22mm features a USM motor for quick and quiet focusing, along with the option of full-time manual focus. The optical construction consists of 13 elements in 10 groups with one Super UD and two aspherical elements.

Extreme wide angle coverage ; Low geometric distortion ; Fast, quiet and internal USM focusing ; Relatively small and light

Lens hood not supplied as standard ; Modest macro capabilities ; Sigma 10-20mm worth considering ; Incompatible with full-frame bodies

In the meantime, if you’re the owner of an EF-S compatible Canon DSLR who’s ever yearned for wider angle coverage, we can highly recommend the EF-S 10-22mm. It performs very well and delivers an exciting and surprisingly flexible range. As such...

Product Specifications

With its effective focal length range of approximately 16-35mm in 35mm format, the EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM is a remarkable lens with outstanding image quality that will take your photography into new dimensions and areas of dramatic expression. The super-wide zoom not only gives you the freedom to get exactly what you want in the shot, it dramatically alters perspective to allow for dynamic expression. The lens allows you to get extremely close to subjects, exaggerating the difference in size between a near object and its background. Creative photographers can use this phenomenon to create excellent separation between subject and background for a strong sense of presence, or for a pan-focus effect with everything from foreground to background sharply in focus. Exceptionally light and compact for its focal length range, the EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM also has an incredibly close minimum focusing distance of just 24cm. A ring-type USM works in concert with the camera to provide super-fast, precision auto focusing and predictive tracking - with full manual override available at any time. Designed specifically for digital photography, the lens has specially shaped lens elements and Super Spectra coatings to suppress ghosting and flare, which can be caused by reflections off digital camera sensors. An exclusive optional lens hood can further reduce the incidence of flare. A circular aperture provides a pleasing background blur when shooting with a wide aperture; ideal for creating a sense of depth and getting your subject or model to stand out from the background.
