    Are there different 10-22 Lenses?

    hi everone
    I have just been looking at a site and it links to a USA site and a UK site

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...g=eflenscom-20
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B...ag=deafclucouk

    the lens look pretty mush the same But one USM ring is Silver the other is Gold ????

    Also the price is ( if you allow for the Pound to US dollar change about 1.5 to 1) quite different.

    it seem the poms are paying around $200 more

    so the question is -
    Is there a difference in the Lens?

    I want to know because it is one of the Lens i want for my 50D.


    Cheers

    From the specifications shown they appear to be exactly the same lens. Just as a matter of interest I checked the lens at a Sydney online retailer and it shows a silver ring and retails for AU$1,165.00. Cheers

    I have this one and it has the silver ring. It was $983 from an Australian online retailer.

    I have this lens and use it for Architectural Photography.
    It is of high quality in performance, and the reason why I think this is not an L lens is because it is an EF-S lens which is for cropped sensors. It should be an L lens.
    Mine has the gold banding, and the text "ultrasonic" branding and logo are also in gold.
    I think it's only in the photo in the catalogue that the banding rings turns into silver?
    Cheers.

    There is only one version of the Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.4-4.5 USM.

    The photo on Amazon's site is in B&W. The "ft" designation on the distance gauge is actually green.

    Mine also has the gold banding and writing, same as Raoul's. All I can say is buy it Allan, you certainly won't regret it! It is a brilliant lens.

    thanks for the replys
    i assumed the color of the ring isn't important
    Interesting that some people have the silver and some the gold.

    but it's probable just a marketing thing
    Can't wait to get on as i'm going to TASSY in a couple of months - i'm sure to need one

    I have the Canon 10-22 wide angle lens and I love it. I have also heard good reports about the Sigma version, but after having a bad experience with a Sigma 70-200 2.8 lens, I am a bit wary of buying Sigma again.

    Unfortunately haven't had a chance to try one yet. I trust reviews here and it looks very good http://www.photozone.de/canon-eos/515-sigma816f4556apsc . I was originally tossing up between the Canon 10-22 and the Toki 11-16 but this (apparently) beats both.

    The gold stripe around the end of the lens barrel indicates the lens has a USM (ultrasonic) drive, all the L lens' have a red stripe around the barrel and does not necessarily indicate USM ultrasonic but the majority do....The 10-22 Canon with the gold stripe is a particularly good lens for the price which has very good image quality. Good luck...))

    Bear in mind this lens is an EF-S lens and can not be used on a full frame camera should you wish to upgrade down the track ...

    I"ve seen this lens on an internet site DWI, dont know much about the company, maybe some one else can shed more light on that, but their price is $768, here is the linkhttp://www.dwidigitalcameras.com.au/...p?idProduct=81
    I assume it is the same lens.
    Canon 500D, Sigma 18-200, Canon 50mm 1.8

    Also check out the Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8.. From what I've read, it's one hell of a lens..

    Probably my next purchase..

    By chance I was reading this earlier today - shows side by side demo pics from most of the WA lenses mentioned here - worth a look I reckon
