Ive had this lens for a little over a year now and have used it quite a bit. This lens is great for shooting architecture and good for landscapes and other things where you want to get a lot into the photo like large crowds. Im an architecture student and I usually bring this lens with me to analyze and catalog buildings. The super wide angle means that you can get shots of even the tightest of spaces. For exterior shotsc you can really get the whole structure in there from standing fairly close to it. I got the whole Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel in Paris near the Louvre from just a few feet away. Going all the way down to 10mmc you can get a very striking two-point perspective style (Google: two-point perspective to see what I mean) shot that is very impressive. I will usually use this lens to get exterior shots and interior shots of whole roomsc and then switch to a 50mm lens to get detail shots. br brIt works well for landscapes alsoc but I feel like the further and more expansive the landscape isc the more the photo suffers from blurring. I have tried taking some cityscape shots and they did not turn out nearly as sharp as they did using a prime lens. I have noticed some vignetting on this lens as well. On a Canon Rebel T3ic this lens is so large that it blocks out a portion of the built-in flashc so if you dont have an external flash and you plan to use this lens in the darkc thats something you will need to take into account as it is quite noticeable. This lens doesnt perform very well in low light situations unless you are using an external flashc taking a long exposure or using light painting techniques. br brFinallyc this lens utilizes the EF-S mounting systemc which only works on APS-C sensors. If youre planning on eventually upgrading to a camera with a full frame sensorc you will not be able to use this lens on that camera.
