I just got the lens last night, anyone else have their lens arrive with some sort of oil smudge on the front of it? Took 3 cleanings to get it all off, took a while.

That is highly unusual. Hopefully you didn't rub off any significant amount of the lens coating with it? I would return it for another.

I didn't notice any coating issues, Canon themselves claim 91% isopropanol is safe for their lenses. The oil came off easy, just spreads until you get it all. Just annoying to have to clean a new lens out of the box.

I don't consider any lense clean until I have mulit angular diffraction of a bright light and then direct light with a flash light. I doubt most folks would have even seen the smudge on the lens to start with.

I've had numerous filters from Hoya dirty out of the box and many with defective coatings, went through 4 - 82mm Moose filters recently until I got a good one and those are $100 a piece, just for a filter.

I had the same odd smudge on mine, DriveHard. :(
At first I thought it was some type of scratch.
It took some work with ROR and a couple of PEC pads, but eventually it came off.
Odd, huh ?

Thanks, Glad I'm not the only special one. Could have been the qaqc team inadvertently, who knows.

one of the local stores has one in stock...extremely tempted to just go get it in the morning, only thing holding me back is paying local sales tax on it.

The correct hood is the EW-73C. Here is a link to how I modified the EW-73B to work: https://photography-on-the.net …?p=16958299&pos​tcount=228

The EW-73 or EW-73 II from the 24-85mm won't work because the petals are 90 degrees out when mounted on a 10-18 STM.

Thanks........ I was looking for this link.:cool:

I know, but legally you are supposed to pay that either way, so just think of it as incentive to do the right thing. :)

Well the sales tax was about 20 bucks, so by knowing this, I own this lens now. 10mm is going to be super fun. i knew it was wide, but until you have it for yourself, you dont realize how wide it is.

Yes lots of flare when shooting directly in the sun, lol...

Decisions.. Decisions..

EF-S 10-18 STM
EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5
Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8

All lenses are sharp. But IMO the 10-18 STM which is probably as SHARP as the other 2 lenses, is just way too price-worthy to not buy. There is no way I could reason to pay twice for either the 10-22 or the Tokina

I think it's a pretty simple decision. That IS will give allow you to shot at lower shutterspeeds than the 10-22, and maybe even the Tokina, and even if it doesn't, it has more wider focal lenght than the Tokina.
