A fast, ultra wide-angle zoom lens offering excellent peripheral performance throughout the zoom range. With a constant f/2.8 aperture, it is ideal for professionals shooting in low light conditions.
L-series construction and optics
f/2.8 aperture throughout zoom range
Fast, quiet auto focus
Aspherical and UD lens elements
Super Spectra coatings
Circular aperture for excellent bokeh
Passes distance information to E-TTL II
Soft case and lens hood
As can be seen there is less distortion and better corner sharpness with my examples.
The only negative is the 82mm filter size of which I also had to purchase another Lee filter holder as well as a new 82mm UV.
This lens is prob my most used lens and is quickly starting to become my fav........the first lens that I feel is close to a max score of 10 but not quite

Nice wide angle zoom with good IQ on a 1D Mark III
I can't find anything wrong with this piece of glass. It's gone through a group of shots now on both the 20D and 1D Mark III. It just works the way I thought it would. On the 20D I used the Canon 10-22mm for a long time and loved it. This is just as good IQ wise and built like those brick walls people love to shoot.
