there is no way they would have charged less even if this lens didn't have IS. and that 1/5th of a second you can hold with your 10=22 becomes 1 sec with this new lens. so the IS is only an advantage with no downfalls at all.

I think that only thing I don't really see an advantage with is the IS unless you are shooting night photos. I can handhold my 10-22 at 1/5 second and get quite acceptable results when zoomed out, and do even better than that if I can brace against something. Seems to me that for most shooting the IS would be redundant.
.


Well whatever you can handhold now, you'll be able to add 2-3 stops to that. So you'll be at ISO 200 instead of 1600 or maybe you can go down to 1 second now.

Most people would be pushing it at 10mm at 1/5, but 10mm with IS, I think most could handhold at 1/3 or 1/2 a second now.

I'm sure most would use IS for low light photos on ANY lens. But specifically, this might be cool for water movement smoothing in daylight, handheld.

... I'm a firm believer in IS most of the time, so I'm not in the naysayers' camp. There's nothing wrong with putting it on this lens, I just don't really see much need for it. It's an added cost, and it seems to me that if they were going to give it a high enough price to include IS, they could have made it with a metal mount too.

I have to say that having used the lens a few time now on a 100D, it's light enough that the lack of 'metal' mount is frankly (IMHO) an irrelevance, unless you are hopelessly clumsy, or want to hammer in nails with your camera ;-)a

I say that from the POV of someone who has a lot of much more expensive and heavier 'L' wide lenses...

besides didn't it turn out that most peoples "metal mounts" are the same as the plastic ones just metal on the outside? from what I read at lensrentals the part that breaks is plastic on almost all lenses "metal" looking or not.

Ken Rockwell states that IQ in the corners is better than the 16-35 f/2.8L :eek:

isn't the 16-35 2.8 known for really really bad corners? as in much worse than the 10-22?

There is flare in his "Sunstars" shot. I think he's a little to enthusiastic ;)

I agree and I think this is the only downside of this lens. Can't wait to buy it unfortunately in Italy it hasn't arrived yet.

Good luck with getting a sharp image at 1 sec!
