First of all thanks for all of the help you all have given already. I cruise through the posts daily.

I have a 60D. I am thinking about purchasing the 10-22. I am wondering if it can be used as a walk around lens or if you usually use a tripod? I plan on doing some landscapes (using the tripod), but would like to carry it as well while traveling.

It doesn't really matter what lens I currently have, I just want to know how you are using yours.

Thanks in advance. Angus

I have a 60D and the 10-22, don't always use a tripod. Great lens for getting everything in the picture but if you want detail of a subject you need to be inches away. Great lens for landscape and architecture. As for a walk around lens, you are only limited by your imagination.

You definitely don't need a tripod. I use mine with a tripod when I'm shooting landscapes, and otherwise its handheld.

yes it can be used as a walk around (i use mine all the time) and as mentioned, you dont always need a tripod. however, you might need some getting used to when it comes to perspective and the distortion the 10-22 has at the wider focal lengths.

Have 60D and 10-22. Used that combo as a walk around. Worked really well.
If doing landscapes though, recommend a tripod or a stable rock to rest the camera on!

I also have a 60D and 10-22. I consider the 22mm end to be near 'normal' focal length. The 10mm end is kind of a specialty area. Walk-around? Sure. Hand-held? Absolutely. Get it, its a fun lens.

I just ordered the sigma 10-20 myself! My walk around will be shared between the 10-20 and my 50 prime.

Definitely easy to hand hold, do walk around yes. For landscape a tripod though.

A couple of HH shots with this lens from the same spot at f/8.

10mm

I've actually rarely use mine and I should definitely use it more. Love the results. I do have a 17-55, which is my go to lens. I've used the 10-22 as my walkaround lens on trail hikes. It's great as a light-weight lens for snapshots. Crop sensor + F4+ wide angle limits subject isolation. I try to use a tripod whenever possible but handheld is no problem.

I used my 10-22 for landscapes, handheld and on a tripod.

You don't say what other lenses you have but I think the 15-85 is a better walkaround lens. The 15mm end is wide, I can see that it's wider than a 17mm, the 2mm do matter. It also will take you out to "normal" and beyond to a moderate telephoto all without changing lenses. Again, I don't know what you shoot when "walking around" but the 10-22 will only take you out to a 35mm FOV.

Both are good crop lenses and it's worth owning both of them. Since adding a FF landscape kit I will keep my 15-85 as a "snapshot/walkaround" lens and probably keep the 10-22 too.

I used it extensively as walk-around in London, where streets are often too narrow for 17-18 mm widest capability. At the longest it is a 35mm equivalent, which is no longer an extreme setting for more modest compositions. The only other lens I took was a 50mm f1.8 for a fairly light and compact set.
I hope something equivalent comes out for the EOS M, with the short mount distance should be able to be considerably smaller...

Thanks everybody for the answers. I am taking forever to make up my mind. @ 2n10--Thanks for the photos at 10 and 22 mm. I can see the trees lean in on the wide end.

I am still not sure what I will do, but I will post pics when I make up my mind. Thanks again. Angus

If it helps you make up your mind, the following were taken with the 10-22 without tripod, as a walk around lens:
