While the question was inclusive of the 10-22's full range the way it was stated, limiting it to the 22 end (35mm equivalent) is not very interesting. The interesting bit (to me, anyway) would be the kind of portrait shots where you would want to use the 10-14 range.
- Special look portraits, where the subject's facial or other features are exaggerated.
- Expansive background portraits, where the setting lends interest or mood
The shot in front of the Lincoln Memorial is another kind of situation, where you just need to get everything in the shot, although that one might have benefited from a bit wider than 22mm setting (JMO, of course, and thanks for the EXIF).(BTW, I find the lack of EXIF data in the 10-22 "post your photos" thread in the lens forum particularly frustrating, given the very wide range of the 10-22 (from UUWA to moderate WA). I would like to know the FL at least of those shots. What's up with most pics here having the EXIF stripped?)
From what I remember on that shot, I was focused on the statue only. She just walked in front of me as I was taking the shots, as I explained in my other post so, I let her be part of the shot and kept it as she gave a bit of size perspective on the statue. Thats why her feet are cut off a bit.
In the following shot, I'm back out wide at 10mm. You can see the distortion in the people in this. But even so, the center of the photo is pretty good. I was not far from the people in this shot either.
All my images retain EXIF info as well as (c) data by default, as I know when I post photos in here, the data is looked at.
I think in general this lens will produce nice candid shots and if you keep in mind where the distortion will happen, and at what distances, etc you can do very well with it. In most cases, you can see the distortion through the viewfinder if you pay attention and fix it as you shoot with camera position, angle and zoom level of usually only a few mm. Such as using 15mm instead of 12mm.
