Canon 10-22mm Review It's a Fine Lens – But is it a Smart Purchase? Since the first APS-C sized imagers appeared in DSLRs a few years ago, photographers have struggled with not having lenses which can provide super-wide angle coverage. With a 1.6X factor, (on Canon DSLRs, at least), a 16mm focal length, like that of Canon's 16-35mm zoom, becomes just 25mm at the wide end. Recently a number of even wider-angle lenses have become available, and the latest of this batch, at least for owners of the Canon 20D and Rebel, is the recently announced Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM. This lens is the equivalent on a reduced frame camera of a 16-35mm in full-frame terms. Keep in mind though that the 10-22mm is an EF-S lens, which means that its designed to only cover the reduced frame size of these cameras. As for whether this lens is good or not (and as we'll see , it's very good), a buyer needs to decide if an investment in a lens that will not work on a full-frame camera at some point down the road is a good idea.

Canon L Lens Series What is the Canon "L" Lens Series? Good question - and many answers exist, but it is Canon's professional line (though used extensively by non-professionals) of EOS EF autofocus 35mm SLR and DSLR still camera lenses. Some say L stands for "Low Dispersion" - achieved by the UD lens elements found in these lenses. Watch the sidelines at the next professional sporting event you attend or watch on TV. About their L lenses, Canon says "these lenses use special optical technologies [such as] Ultra-low Dispersion UD glass, Super Low Dispersion glass, Fluorite elements, and Aspherical elements to truly push the optical envelope." OK so what does that mean - practically speaking? What you can get when you use Canon L lenses (if you do your part right) are amazing pictures. The above picture shows the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS USM Lens (left) compared to the Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 L IS USM Lens extended and retracted along with their lens hoods.

It's one of the best-selling models in Manfrotto's X range, striking a great balance between price and performance. Like most higher-end tripods, the 190XPROB does not come with a head as a standard. Instead it features a plate onto which you can mount a wide variety of optional heads to match your exact requirements. In my full review of the 190XPROB I'll compare its features and stability against three other key models in the same range, including the carbon fiber 190CXPRO3 version and the larger 055CXPRO3 and 055XPROB models. Manfrotto is one of the most respected names in the business and these tripods represent a significant step-up from budget options. At Camera Labs we'll help you make the right choice between these four popular models. If you're interested in the lighter carbon fiber version, check out our Manfrotto 190CXPRO3 review.
