I wonder how this thing will compare to the 10-22?
At $300 vs $650 can it possibly be near the same quality?

My 10-22 seem built like a tank compared to the other STM offerings.

Nevermind see the release actually says 10-18mm stm ef-s lens. Cool!

It's a 10-18 not 10-20. Looks like its made to fit in with the 18-55 and 55-250 lenses. Looks like a plastics mount and slightly slower aperture.

We won't know for sure until the actual release but I'm guessing IQ will be a step down from the 10-22 as well. Still, I wish canon had this lens out when I started getting into photography. Should be a great lens for the landscape beginner or really anyone who need a APS-c UWA lens for cheap!!

I'm a little confused about the need for this lens unless it's in the category of a kit lens quality. It's a little slower but it does have IS. Stabilization is not as important with an UWA but it still helps, especially with video.

I love my 10-22 but feel I could have saved about half if I would have waited for this lens. Anxious to hear the feedback from usage.

oops. That's what I get for reading in a hurry.
10-18 it is.

But still. Same question.
And the IS combined with the STM for video makes a lot of sense,

Here's a brief comparison. Looks like the new lens is a step below in potential image quality. But looks like a nice lens especially for video and as one above said, entry level landscape. All in all a nice offering at an incredible price point imo.

Given the 18-55 STM and 55-250 STM, I expect the optics to be quite good actually, while CA control is lacking, and possibly a bit more distortion to deal with.

Given that the 3 lenses covering 10-250
would go for just under $900 AND offer IS and STM.

Not a bad kit for a crop hobbyist.

Would make a nice lightweight travel bag
with a Rebel body.

STM means it focuses faster, more accurately, and more silently than your lenses. ;)

Im wondering how this will compare to the Tokina 11-16 as far as quality. And at half the price, I wonder if it will pull people that dont specifically need 2.8. Its attractive to me and the IS is good for a stop most likely. Hmmm. Decisions.

airbutchie - Joe was definitely right about adding contrast...

One really attractive thing, at least to me, is that this lens has a lower filter ring size, so it's cheaper to adapt filters to, or cheaper to get filters specifically for.

I have no interest in it, as I have the Tokina 11-16 F2.8 II.

It can't compare to the Tokina's build, but could compare to the image quality. The Tokina is built like an L lens, tank-like, very well made. Durable, heavy. This new 10-18 STM is not even as well made as the EF-S 10-22. It's an entry plastic cheap lens with good optics. You're saving by not buying a better built lens with wide aperture and better multi-coating.

But, if I didn't already have it, I'd be interested in this little lens simply because it's wide, takes filters, is small, and can take a lens hood even with the filters. That's hard to find in a lot of ultrawides that are inexpensive as many can't take filters.

I think ultimately this lens is for video. You don't need STM, as you won't be autofocusing landscape. You don't need IS, because really, you'll be turning it off on a tripod. So it's features benefit someone who's not using a tripod, and is using lots of autofocus. Maybe it's more useful as an interesting wide "walk around" lens with IS and STM, especially on a 70D with ISO pushed high and running in AV mode, or filming.

Very best,

It's an interesting lens, and especially if it hits a street price of $250 after a MIR I'll be picking one up. With used 10-22s going for 450+ at half the price, if the IQ is decent it'll be a great little lens.

There are a lot of trips I'd love to have a light UWA on that I'd never take a tripod. There are also a lot of places where you can't take a tripod as well. This lens won't replace the 10-22 for serious landscape work, but it'll fit in nicely for those who want an UWA but aren't overly serious about it.
