EF-S Lenses
By reducing the distance from the rear of the lens to the focal plane and reducing the size of the image circle to match the size of the APS-C imaging sensor used in digital SLRs such as the EOS 20D camera and Digital Rebel camera,Canon's EF-S lenses reduce the size, weight and cost of wide-angle lenses for these cameras while at the same time producing high image quality with superb resolution and contrast at all focal lengths.

EF-S 10-22 3.5/4.5 USM
This exciting new zoom lens provides ultra wide-angle coverage to the EOS 20D camera and Digital Rebel camera shooter. Equivalent toa 16-35mm zoom for a 35mm film camera, it offers excellent performance and optics designed from the ground-up for digital SLR use. Excluding fisheye lenses, the EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM lens has the shortest minimum focal length ever offered for interchangeablelens digital SLRs with APS-C image sensors.

Photographers will achieve consistently excellent image quality throughout the zoom range of this lens because of its 3 Aspherical elements and 1 Super-UD element in a 13-element optical formula. A ring-type ultrasonic focusing motor (USM) provides fast and silent AF along with full-time manual focus. Minimum focusing distance is 9.5 inches for breathtaking close-ups. The EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM lens is relatively light and compact at 3.5 inches in length and a weight of 13.6 oz. The new lens accepts 77mm filters and can be fitted with an optional bayonet-mount lens hood.

Please Note: This lens is compatible only with the EOS 20D, EOS 30D, EOS 40D, EOS 50D, D7 and all EOS Rebel and EOS Digital Rebel models with APS-C sized sensors
Not suitable for 35mm film SLR cameras, or for 35mm size "full-frame" digital cameras, e.g. 1Ds or Kodak Pro SLR/c.

Most Liked Positive Review



I buy only L lenses for my Canon cameras -- whether digital or film. There is one exception. I bought this 10-22mm for use with my EOS 40D. This lens, in my experience (a serious photographer for more than 50 years) is the equivalent to an L lens in every respect. It is a "must have" for anyone shooting an APS-C sensor digital body and desiring absolutely superb wide-angle performance.

qaulity short lived

This is the 4th Canon lens I have owned. I never had any trouble with my previous Canon products. After 7 months of normal use the len became very loose in the mid section. This problem is not coverd by the warranty. I don't know how often this happens or what caused problem. I was always very careful with this lens as with all my lenses.

Better than expected


from Chicagoland, Illinois  -  Photo Enthusiast

I use this lens for some landscape shooting. It is tack sharp, it's a Canon lens for a canon camera, a great combination.


Best Purchase Ever


from Fort Collins, CO

I left my Canon outside during a rainstorm for six hours or more and this lens was attached to the camera. I separated the lens and body and dried them of the condensation. This lens still works beautifully as does the body (7d). I definitely recommend this lens to anyone considering it.


Another Winner!


from Wyoming

Canon has been my favorite tool for the photography I've done throughout the past 50 years. I started with the FTb, graduated into a full F1 system, and when digital came along used the XTi and then a 1D, and now have a 60D, which I mainly use for scenic HDR panoramas. I had been using the EFS 18-135 lens for these, and wanted a larger angle of view, but on my limited retirement income could not afford the "L" series class. I purchased the 10-18mm lens, and am very happy with the results it renders. I don't find any problem with it having the plastic (instead of metal) rear housing. The optics are excellent, as I have come to expect from Canon, and I am very happy with the value I have received for my money - Thanks, Canon!


I expected more for the price.


from Medford,NY  -  Photo Enthusiast

I bought this 10-24mm wide angle lens because I heard so many photographers from the tutorials I have been watching, state that this is one that they usually carry in their bags for landscapes. I was about to go on my first trip to the Maine coastline and was extremely excited to try it out on those interesting seascapes. I was slightly disappointed. I could not get used to the barrel distortion on the edging and even if I used an ISO of 100, the noise was very pronounced. For the price, I was expecting more. I am sending this one back and probably spend a little more to try the 16-35mm.


Sharp and Wide


from Michigan  -  Photo Enthusiast

I've been experimenting with both lens and software since its arrival. The lens appears sharp throughout its range, and can be used pretty close to the sun without internal reflections when combined with the hood, which is HUGE, blocking the bottom quarter of the picture with the on-camera flash. I've got the 430EXII speedlite, and with the flash on the camera shoe the hood is out of play. Needs a good diffuser on the flash to use at ~15mm. Much below that focal length and you'd best be shooting ambient. I'm open to suggestions for spreading the flash, if anyone has one. Great inside and group lens if you have the light. Now to save up for the polarizer for wide outdoor shots.

Amazing lens, amazing photos


from Undisclosed

This is one of the best lenses I've owned. It's indcredibly sharp and the color quality is first-rate. Even the lens flare is well handled, which is rare in an ultra-wide lens. As it is so wide, the photographer has to be prepared for the distortion. For landscapes and architecture on a cropped sensor, this lens is perfect. The only complaint I have is that it didn't come with a hood. Well, it was a tad pricey, too.


As good as new


from kc. mo.  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I love this lens. I bought it for the purpose of wide angle landscape(hopefully low light) shots when I go to Zion in July. In the meantime I've been using it for close ups, (within 2'-3') at interesring angles. I always read reviews of lenses before purchasing to understand the ranges and lmits of a lens.I've found those reviews not exactly helpful as I generally try to be creative and shoot beyond those limits. This lense is no exception to my style. Spend some time, get to know it. I think you'll love it!


Bought used but it's like new!


from kansas city, MO.  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I love this lens. I bought it for the purpose of shooting low light landscape when I go to Zion in July. In the meantime I've been playing with close up, 2'-3' at interesting angles. I read the reviews but try not to limit myself by the things those reviews define. I'm having a great time with it. As always Adorama did not disappoint my expectations on the quality description or the delivery time. Love It.


Fantastic Wide Angle Lens


from Florida  -  Photo Enthusiast

This product is perfect for beautiful landscapes, closeups of large groups and individuals and Macro photography.




from Galena, OH

O.K., I was already blown away with the quality of the lens itself and with the pictures I took with it, but nothing compares to what happened to the lens over the winter. I was out shooting some nature shots here in Central Ohio where there was quite a bit of snow on the ground; somehow the lens fell out of my bag and I didn't realize it until I got back to my car. I retraced my steps all to no avail. I notified the park ranger that I had lost the lens and, still having the lens booklet in my bag, was able to give him the lens information. Well, 3 months later I get a call from the ranger. Yes, they had found my lens! Although I was happy to get it back I knew it couldn't possibly be functional after 3 months buried in the snow. I was wrong. Not only was it functional, but the picture quality was diminished in no way! No fogging, no condensation, nothing; it just works. This is just one of the reasons why I have never owned any camera or camera accessory other than a Canon!

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
FIONA M  time-lapse business project.
Shopper  Trying to decide between the canon 10-22 and the tokina 11-16, which should I go with?
TOM D  I own Nikon equipment and use the 12-24 Tokina with which I have been very satisfied with its performance. My brother-in-law has used the 10-22 Canon lens and has been quite pleased with it. The 11-16 Tokina is a stop or so faster, which might be important if you own an older camera. Newer cameras do so well with low light that the extra speed gained with 2.8 is nullified. Ken Rockwell has noted that the Canon 10-22 is the best ultrawide lens made for small sensor SLR's.
KEITH K  Is this lens compatable with the 5d Mark iii?
JOHN E  Keith, This lens was intended for cameras like the cropped sensor Canon's such as the 7D. The 16-35mm, or the 17-40mm are better suited on the full frame cameras, like yours. I hope that helps.
