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.

Lens discussion at — 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.

Aquarium tunnel, taken at ISO 1600 and Spinning Funfair Merry-Go-Round — Photographed with the Canon 50D. Focal length used was 10mm (full wide-angle zoom end) for both photos.

Random images from user galleries on — 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.
