Whether Ken Rockwell is full of crap or not, this lens is a terrific lens, especially considering the price. If you don't already have the 10-22, you should def, get this

Dissing KR is a minor sport on this board, but for anyone who is just getting into UWA photography, this is an excellent article (external link). There are a few KR-isms in there, of course, but overall, every beginner to UWA photographer can benefit from it.

If you can ignore his personality a bit, he's actually got some pretty decent stuff on his site. I know people make fun of some of his opinions, but I honestly like how he tries to tell amateurs that they should worry less about gear.

Now he has some crazy stuff on his site and he is a bit of a nut, but there's some good in there.

They need to bundle this lens with the SL1 and call it the backpackers kit :)

I'm thinking I might have to sell off my m43 camera and lens and switch over to that combo for backpacking.

I sort of agree. A beginner should learn a bit about exposure, then get out and take lots of photographs. There is no real substitute for practice. It is certainly possible to outgrow beginner equipment, but you can learn using just about anything.

Oh absolutely. I thoroughly enjoy reading through his site. Lots of good stuff to ponder. As with most things in life, one is free to make up their own minds as to the validity of the contents. I've never yet met another person that I agree 100% with 100% of the time. Some people just seem to get really hung up about things like that.

The-Digital-Picture.com now has the 10-18 in it's "Lens Image Quality" tool. http://www.the-digital-picture.com …omp=0&FLIComp=0​&APIComp=0 (external link)

It looks to me like the 10-18 is just slightly better at the wide end, while the 10-22 is slightly better at the longer end. The corners seem slightly better on the 10-22 at all focal lengths.

Overall I'd say they are both very good.

I have the 18-55 mm kit lens on my Rebel t3i. Assuming I would get this lens and not use it past 14 or 12 to minimize distortion what point would it really have? Is there a large difference between 18 and 14 mm? Or even 18 and 12?

I realize that at 1.6 it's not nothing but is it really worth considering for landscapes?

I don't know about 18-12 but there is a pretty big difference between 18 and 15

Vast difference...

The 18-55 is equivalent to about 29mm on full frame. That only just touching 'wideish' in my book.

Wide for me starts at 24mm (15mm) which is why I got a 15-85 for my 100D. Feels similar to my 'everyday' 24-70 on my 1Ds3

However I have to ask... Why on earth not use it at wide angles? ;-)a

My landscape favourites are EF14, TS-E17 and TS-E24 (on the 1Ds3)

It takes practice and experimentation to really get the feel for wide angle use - I used to use the EF16-35 a lot on my old 1Ds and have a lot of big landscape prints taken with it

I'm now seriously recommending this lens when I'm doing some of my teaching work (one reason I got one and wrote the review)


bye for now

?????????

What's the point of getting an UWA and then not using it at wide angles?

You would be startled at the difference between 10 and 11mm.

Here is 18mm and 10mm shot from the same point. There is a vast difference. Keeping the camera level (not pointing up or down at all) goes a long way in elimination perspective distortion.

Just rented this lens for a week at the beach. Looking forward to sunset and beach-scape shots.
