Playing Around & Getting To Know The Canon EFS 10-22mm USM Lens

I've had my eye on a wide-angle lens for some time now and have been flipping the coin between two lenses, the Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 and the Canon EFS 10-22mm USM f3.5-4.5. I opted for the Canon in the end as although the Tokina's lure was the wider 2.8 aperture, I mainly shoot in the studio with lots of available light, so the Canon slightly wider focal range was my most favoured choice. See it here on Canon's website – Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM

With that said, my first shots I took were outside and I've only had the chance to play around with it a couple of times and wanted to share these pics from the garden. I have a portrait photo shoot planned in the studio this week, so I'll post some shots from that later in the week.

I've cropped these down to 640 x 270 as I like the look and they fit my blog nicely.

The next shot below really shows the super-wide 10mm in action as my oval patio table now looks completely round.

I'll put up a comparison between my two new lenses (Canon 10-22mm and the Canon 70-300mm) against the stock 18-55mm lens as this is something I was looking for when researching what lenses to buy next and I think some may find it useful, more on that real soon.
