This 10-22mm was Canon’south very first ultrawide for its APS-C DSLRs.

It was hot stuff when announced in Baronial 2004, simply today, the new x-18mm
EF-S is optically superior, smaller, lighter, add Prototype Stabilization and sells for one-half the price.

The best thing nearly this lens is its metallic lens mount, slightly faster optical speed and directly mechanical instant manual-focus override. Otherwise, the
x-18mm
is better in every other way and half the price.

Overall





performance      top

The Canon 10-22mm is well made, but optically junior to the newest 10-18mm.


Focus

operation      elevation

Autofocus is very fast and placidity, but as fast and not silent like the 10-18mm.

Auto/Manual Switching

Just flick the focus ring with a finger anytime for instant manual-focus override.

To lock it into manual mode, motion the switch on the lens.


Bokeh





performance      summit

Bokeh, the quality of out-of-focus areas as opposed to the caste of defocus, isn’t visible. There is rarely anything out of focus except at macro ranges, at which point bokeh is neutral.


Color Rendition


operation      top

The color balance of this ten-18 seems the same as my other Catechism EF and EF-S lenses.


Baloney





operation      superlative

The Canon 10-18 STM has moderate butt distortion at 10mm, and otherwise no visible distortion.

For critical use, use these values in Photoshop’due south Lens Baloney tool to remove the distortion. These aren’t facts or specifications, they are the results of my research that requires hours of photography and calculations on the resulting data.

Ergonomics

functioning      top

Ergonomics are perfect. The front end one-half of the lens is the zoom ring, and the focus and IS controls are correct under your fingers.

The zoom ring includes the gold ULTRASONIC ring, which keeps your hand form slipping forward off the zoom ring.

The thinner black ribbed band at the rear is the transmission focus ring. Flick it with a fingertip at any time for instant manual focus override.


Falloff

(darkened corners)



performance      peak

Without a contour, falloff is visible wide open up, and goes away by f/v.6.

In the newer DSLRs with automatic correction, be certain you have a profile loaded for this lens and the falloff becomes completely invisible (not shown hither).

I’ve greatly exaggerated the falloff past shooting a flat gray target and presenting it against a gray background:

Filters, Use with





performance      height

There’southward no problem with vignetting, fifty-fifty with thick rotating filters.

There’due south no need for thin filters; regular thick and rotating filters work nifty.

In fact, I tin stack a regular Hoya rotating polarizer over a fat Tiffen Haze filter, and I get no vignetting so long every bit I don’t zoom wider than 12mm!


Focus Breathing

performance      elevation

Focus breathing (the image changing size as focused) is generally of interest to cinematographers who don’t want the epitome changing size (“breathing”) as the lens is focused among different subjects.

In that location is only the slightest fleck of breathing. If you can see anything, the image gets very slightly smaller as focussed more than closely.


Ghosts

At that place’s no trouble with flare or ghosts.

If I leave of my mode, I can go one faint green blob opposite the sun, simply yous accept to realize that this is an extreme instance shown in a higher place.

This is excellent performance, but still not quite every bit good as the 10-18mm.


Lateral Color Fringes





performance      height

Without an in-camera contour, at that place are dark-green-magenta corner color fringes at all zoom settings.

Newer cameras with a lens contour loaded will articulate these up.

The 10-18mm is much better.


Macro


operation      superlative

Macro gets very shut.

Information technology’s rated as
ix.5 inches (24 cm), just that’southward from the epitome aeroplane at the dorsum of the camera.

I measure out its shut-focus distance as eight.5″ (22 cm) from the paradigm plane, which is 3-3/4″ (ix cm) from the front of the lens!

Here’south what y’all get zoomed to 22mm:

Sharpness





functioning      peak

Image sharpness depends more than on yous than your lens, and lens sharpness doesn’t mean much to good photographers. It’south the to the lowest degree skilled hobbyists who waste the most fourth dimension blaming fuzzy pictures on their lenses, while existent shooters know that few photos ever utilize all the sharpness of which their lenses are capable due to subject motion and the fact that existent subjects are rarely perfectly apartment.

This Canon 10-22 is abrupt stopped downwards, and moderately soft on the sides wide-open up. Information technology near expect broken compared to the new ten-18mm.

Diffraction will dull the image at the smallest apertures.

At 10mm, the sides are soft broad open and accept lateral color fringes if non corrected with a contour. It gets sharper at f/8, just the color fringes, if left uncorrected, tin exist distracting.

At 14mm, the corners are soft wide open and at f/5.6, and much sharper at f/8 and f/11.

At 22mm, the sides are soft wide open, and much better at f/8 and f/eleven, but even so not that fantastic. Lateral color fringes are visible if uncorrected.

This is what I saw in 2014; I saw like results with a different sample back effectually 2006. This used ot be the best you could go for a Canon APS-C camera, until the 10-18mm came out in 2014.


Sunstars

With its rounded half-dozen-blade diaphragm, this Canon 10-22mm makes only muted sunstars at all-time.

Worse, if yous can become any sunstars, they are silly half-dozen-pointed stars nlike the one in a higher place.

Filters

I’d leave either a 77mm Catechism UV filter or a 77mm Hoya Alpha MC UV on the lens at all times.

If you desire the all-time possible protective filter, the 77mm Hoya HD2 Protector is ultra multicoated, repels dirt and fingerprints and made of shatter resistant glass.

If I was working in nasty, dirty areas and don’t want to jump for the HD2 filter, I’d use an uncoated 77mm Tiffen UV filter instead. Uncoated filters are much easier to clean, but more prone to ghosting.

I wouldn’t use a hood.


Flash

The 10 – 22 is then wide that information technology will cast a shadow from the flash at the lesser of the image at ten mm with built in flash. It’s OK at 22mm. Be careful.


Tip:

Turning the photographic camera upside down will throw this shadow into the heaven where you unremarkably won’t see it!

Forget this classic; become the new Catechism ten-18mm instead.

This is unusual for me, just even if yous already own one of these, it makes sense to sell it and buy a x-18mm to replace information technology. Non only is the x-18mm a much improve lens, you’ll probably wind up with cash in your pocket after the transaction!
