Hi everyone. I received the Canon 10-22 today. It arrived a lot faster than I expected. My initial reactions once I opened the box.... Wow! This is is small. The lens is probably the lightest and smallest lens I own. It does not feel cheap. Im so glad it small and light. The thing is W I D E. The widest I have ever used is the 17mm on the 17-55. I thought to myself just before receiving it, maybe 17mm is wide enough. Yeah right. The focus ring is a lot smoother than the one on my 17-55. The lens goes on tight when I put it on the camera. The build is what I expected from an EF-S. Its good. Not too shabby. Im impressed with the lens. I will be going out again to shoot with it later today.

The difference between 10mm and 17mm surprised me big time also.

You need to change your sig again. 85L and 10-22 in 24 hours. That must be fun.

Now get out there and shoot!

i have some nice lenses, but nothing makes me smile like the 10 22. i shot a memorial cemetary today in san francisco, and once i put the UWA on, it didn't come off..
if it was faster -like 2.8, i'd sell my 24L and make it my walkaround. i love the relatively wide-normal angle when it's out at 22 (then again my 24L is my walkaround).
cheers and enjoy.
