How do you like that 10-22? I debate getting the thing from time to time. Have a 15-85, but at the wide end it sometimes seems pretty soft in the corners.

Heya,

I traded in my Tokina 11-16 F2.8 II for it. The Tokina was sharper. But I just couldn't get along with the flare that Tokina had. It was brilliant in low light and astro, but any time I used the sun, the flare was crazy. It drove me mad. I eventually switched to the 10-22. It's not the sharpest lens. But it handles flare very well. I have a lot of shots on the 10-22 at this point, and I've yet to find myself staring at a corner at 10mm and thinking "this is too soft." I'm way more concerned with distortion and stretching at 10mm, as it's quite present and way more noticeable to me than sharpness is. I generally shoot it at F8~F11. So far, I'm still happy with the swap. I really liked the Tokina. But, being able to shoot into the sun when I please is a big plus here in Florida.

Here's the 10-22 right into the sun on the same day as the previous shot posted.

Again, I've yet to be too concerned with corner sharpness at 10mm. Just looking at corners at 10mm, everything is stretched and distorted, lines become curves, so it's hard to really tell that something is noticeably softer in nature, rather than say... on a chart with lines and numbers. I have a lot of 10mm shots too.

Anyhow, here's an interesting comparison:

10-22 @ 22mm F11

Thanks for the reply. I borrowed a Tokina 11-16 this fall and was impressed with the sharpness, but the range was so short I would always be swapping lenses if using it regularly. Also, it's a pretty big lens. The shots on your flickr page look pretty sharp to me.

Beautiful scene and photo. I have tried a couple times to visit falls in that area, but weather has not cooperated and I've had trouble finding a suitable site for my motor home. This suggests I should keep trying.

Very nice capture. I will have to go exploring in that area I am just up the road a little bit. Thanks for sharing.

There's a lot with to see around that part of the state. I'm still finding new places to photograph. Almost all of the falls around that part of the state are really dependent on rain fall so it can be hit or miss.

Cool. I'm outside of Franklin. This is about the closest good falls for me to go shoot. The main fall (Machine Falls) wasn't flowing very well that day. Old Stone Fort is close to there as well.

Thanks a lot for taking the time to post that as I think it's a very good observation! It's something I didn't even notice and I think I will play with that horizon a lot. Sometimes it's easy to get caught up in the right contrasts and colors, etc. and one forgets some of the other details, which is what I may have done here. It takes another eye once in a while to help you see those kinds of details.

Thanks a lot for all of your comments Phoenix!

This is such a beautiful composition. All of the colors work so well together and I love the clarity of the photo. Nice work! Probably a great place just to sit and take in for a while, too!

"Bamboo Legends"

A capture inside a fantastic bamboo forest at Kodadji Temple in Kyoto, Japan. I couldn't help but wonder the stories that this bamboo forest has to tell being in such an ancient place. This image was actually very tricky to capture.......since I was unable to use a tripod at the Temple and it was raining, I used a 70-200 lens with Vibration Reduction while using my Wife's shoulder as a support while she was holding an umbrella over us :) Hope you enjoy!
