Enjoy a stunning landscape image of the Bromo-Tengger-Semeru National Park, East Java, Indonesia, photographed by “tropicaLiving” with a Canon 50D plus Lee 0.6 and 0.9 graduated filters.
This Greek Street Cat image by Mike Matas is a really nice example of how to use the ultra-wide angle distortion on this lens for dramatic photos, or just pictures with a difference.
Sample photos, image galleries and user-submitted images
Flickr Group Pool and Pixel-Peeper photos — The following three links are a great way to discover images made with the EF-S 10-22mm lens, and I personally find many of them to be stunning examples of what kind of photography you can undertake if you have this optic in your collection:
Beautiful architecture / landscape / reflection photo by Martin Pot — Camera used was the Canon 50D.
Lens discussion at Clubsnap.org — This thread started with a question about comparing the EF-S 10-22mm against Sigma’s 10-20mm. The response overwhelmingly favors the Canon product, but what’s even more interesting are the links to image samples. I highly recommend you follow the links and view some great photography with the EF-S 10-22 lens.
Random images from user galleries on PBase.com — Don’t forget to hit the refresh button on your browser to serve up another set of random pictures. You’ll also find user reviews there. Here is a fun shot at 16mm, a pretty good indication of how an unusually wide perspective can give normal photos a boost in interest levels.
The filter thread size on the 10-22 is 77mm, which means you’ll want to be looking at 77mm filters.
A lens hood isn’t included in the box, unfortunately, so you might want to consider purchasing the Canon EW-83E Lens Hood to reduce flare and increase image contrast when the sun is hitting the front of the lens at an angle.
