Canon 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 EF-S USM

Check availablity: Adorama, Amazon USA, Amazon UK, B&H, eBay.

Solidly built, but not professional grade. Vignetting is around 0.9 EV at maximum aperture at 10 mm, and some CA at the wide end. Otherwise very good performance. Sharpness is excellent at all focal lengths, even wide open. Distortions are well controlled. There is some easy to correct barrel distortion at 10mm, a negligible amount at 15mm, and only a tiny amount of pincushion distortion at 22mm.

Uses lens-hood EW-83E (optional) and case LP1319 (included).
