I came across this photo while surfing flickr. I like the subject isolation and the way the car pops.
From my understanding of zooms, a shallow dof results when the lens is set to a wide aperture (say f2.8) and a long focal length. But this photographer used his 10-22 lens at f10 and 10mm. And yet the shallow dof is very attractive.
So, is shallow dof a characteristic of the 10-22? I enjoy car show photography, perhaps I should put this lens on my Christmas list?
