I have the 18mm-55mm kit lens on my T2i right now
. I also have the 50mm 1.8, but was looking for something a little more wide angle.
Would the EF-S 10mm-18mm F/4.5-5.6 IS STM be a good upgrade without spending $800+ on an 17mm-40mm F/4 "L" wide angle, for example.
I really just want to try out a wider angle before I decide if it's something I want to deal with, let me know what you think.
The closets camera store is 175 miles one way from my front door step.
But when I do get the big city normally I stop in the camera store and buy accessories.
The owner of the store is always showing me some really neat lenses or the latest and greatest equipment.
One way of figuring out which lens you want is go to the camera store,
Pace out a distance take a photo with your 18- 55mm snap off a picture or 2,
then ask to see the lenses you are thinking of buying.
mount that lens on your body go to the exact same spot you paced out and snap of a few frames.
After doing this with every lens that you are thinking about buying take your camera home .
Down load the pictures and then study the pictures and see which lens best suits your style.
I would also take one other factor into account, if in the future you plan on moving into a full frame body then that may make to buy lenses that will also fit a FF body.
A STM 18-55mm or a EF-s 10- 22mm lens will NOT fit on a FF body.
Good luck in your choice that you make, and if you lived close to me I would let you try out the lenses I have to help you find the right lens for you.
