I got the 10-22 thinking I may have lots of uses for it, but I'm struggling to use it. Not sure why, in my film days I loved my 17mm. But here are a few shots. I'm not sure if I'm going to keep it or send it back for the 17-40. I feel like it may be too wide for most of my personal uses. I don't really like that you have to basically be in the shot to get the shot. Sometimes I need to be able to keep my distance.
and i thought that film is full frame so 17mm is 17mm, but 10-22 on 30D or 40D is 16mm [1.6x crop factor], so how come that 16mm view focal length is too wide comparing to 17mm, i try to understand this statement but sure there is something i don't know in photography world [as i never used film before].
