So many times I was cursing myself for not having a decent wide angle lens while traveling West. So many times driving past vast landscapes with dramatic skies and blooming multicolor grasses (thanks to the end of the drought) I was dreaming of being able to frame and capture natural beauty of the land.
I needed this sort of optics badly. After months of feeling guilty thinking of this new purchase finally one evening when I had to do some additional work, decided that I am definitely not doing it without little prize. God bless online shopping
My opportunity to try this baby came on the very next weekend when we had to attend Jacob’ and Charmaine’s engagement party in Dubbo, NSW (which turned out to be a wedding but this is not subject of this post
I think that was right decision – 10-22mm on my old chap 450D gives decent wide angle, finally opens up the sky. It is fast enough for most landscape daytime scenarios, at dusk you would use tripod anyway.
An added value for me is that it is not heavy, it has handsome hood (at additional cost). It really suits 450D with a grip. It is definitely sort of lens you can take traveling.
