Hello I am getting this as a gift for someone.

They want the CANON 10-22MM LENS..

I know nothing about photography, now is this a good lens? And if so where is the best/cheapest place to get it? Preferably new..

Thank you

Don't mean to hijack your post.

But.......

I'm thinking of getting a Canon Rebel eos, wondering if I should go for the Sl1 which is smaller , or T3I which is on sale?

What kind of camera do they have?  That lens wont work on Full Frame Canon SLR's (5D, 6D, 1D) as I believe the rear element would hit the mirror.

Its a great lens. I own one that I bought from a fellow NTer (
) and I like it a lot.  Goes for $500ish used in good-great condition (no marks/scratches on glass)

nyc game: buy used, its cheaper (as far as the t3i is concerned). if size is your concern, go with the SL1 (again, used if you can)

TN123: again, I'd buy it used. its probably not the best, but if thats what they want...

here's 3 lens that fit what they want (canon included):

(tokina, seems decent, around the same price as the canon though, and a little shorter in focal length, but its better at low light)

(the canon, decent in its area, considered the standard in that price range)

http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/search?Ntt=sigma+10-20mm&N=0&InitialSearch=yes&sts=ta&usedSearch=1
(sigma, little bit cheaper, decent, but reviews say tend its not as good as the canon)

also, dont simp

The 10-22 won't work on a full frame. It is a good lens though. However, if they had a full frame, they might be more inclined to grab the 17-40 f4.

I'd check out B&H or Craigslist for people selling it used.

If he has a full frame and want the same exact lengh, then get the 16-35L. However, keep in mind that both lens are very limited ... Just depends on what you want to do really.

I rarely go below 30-35mm even for landscapes ....

Anything below that you start getting into distortion depending on how you are taking the picture.

With all that said, if you don't mind - it's a very nice lens for places that you don't have much room and landscape. Watch your feets/tripods when at low mm.

The Sigma is a bit hit and miss as far as sharpness. I got mixed results with it. I'm eyeing the 10-22 as well but it's a bit pricey. Great lens though.
