As an ultra wide angle lens, the EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM offers a wider field of view than most general purpose lenses, letting you push out the edges of each frame to capture even more of your subject. This makes it a superb landscape lens, capturing sweeping panoramas in wide angle for a beautifully dramatic effect. Compatible with all EF-S mount EOS cameras, the EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM is compact and lightweight, yet robust and solidly built, making it easy to carry and comfortable to handle. Featuring a ring-type USM, it is fast to focus and allows you to track subjects with ease. Flare can often be an issue with ultra wide angle lenses, however, the 10-22 keeps flare – and chromatic aberration and distortion – well under control. It is also impressively sharp wide open over the entire focal length range, and provides excellent depth of field and great background blur.
