"My favorite lens is the Canon 10-22mm EF-S," says TDS member, Jim Austin. "It travels well. The autofocus is 007 silent. Zooming is a pleasure. I used the 10-22mm for this picture of St. Mary's church. Notice how the foreground and background are sharp with good contrast. Flare and distortion are low."
"The price is within earth's orbit ($690 US). One last thing? The EW83 lens shade is totally cool -- it looks like you could use it to film a Hollywood blockbuster."
