This is a fantastic price for a great lens, thought I picked up a bargin last year when I picked it up for £540.

OSD has fantastic reviews, shipped from Hong Kong, usually arrives the next day.

Manufacturer's Description
Zoom lenses are very convenient. The equivalent of two or more fixed focal length lenses in one unit. The maximum aperture of some zoom lenses changes as you alter the focal length, but through-the-lens (TTL) metering takes this into account to give correct exposure.
With its effective focal length range of approximately 16-35mm in 35mm format, the EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM is a remarkable lens with outstanding image quality that will take your photography into new dimensions and areas of dramatic expression.

The super-wide zoom not only gives you the freedom to get exactly what you want in the shot, it dramatically alters perspective to allow for dynamic expression. The lens allows you to get extremely close to subjects, exaggerating the difference in size between a near object and its background.

Creative photographers can use this phenomenon to create excellent separation between subject and background for a strong sense of presence, or for a pan-focus effect with everything from foreground to background sharply in focus.

Exceptionally light and compact for its focal length range, the EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM also has an incredibly close minimum focusing distance of just 24cm.A ring-type USM works in concert with the camera to provide super-fast, precision auto focusing and predictive tracking - with full manual override available at any time.Designed specifically for digital photography, the lens has specially shaped lens elements and Super Spectra coatings to suppress ghosting and flare, which can be caused by reflections off digital camera sensors.

An exclusive optional lens hood can further reduce the incidence of flare.A circular aperture provides a pleasing background blur when shooting with a wide aperture; ideal for creating a sense of depth and getting your subject or model to stand out from the background.

In fact theres some other great deals too, I haad an eye on the Canon EF 70-200mm f/4 L IS USM Lens which is selling for £823, next cheapest is £915!

Great lens for the croped sensors, these sell second hand at just over £400. Good price new, a must for any Canon landscape/Urban togger! I would advise getting the hood too, the genuine one or a 3rd party dont really matter.

Certainly is, never heard of the site before though, can anyone shed any light?

This is a great lens, I've had one for years and cost me way more than this back in the day.

Review & Sample Pics here

I don't know about OSD, never used them but be careful to check warranty situation. First one of these lenses I had was returned with back focus problems. Second one never given a problem.

I can vouch for OSD, have used them before and they were great. If you email them they usually reply the same day and shipping was next day from hong kong! They also have a VAT promise so you wont be stung with import duties.

It wasn't so much referring to whether or not the lens would arrive, or even arrive at the advertised price. I believe Canon UK warranty will most likely not be honoured on any glass sourced outside of the UK. When spending that kind of money on a lens, personally I would rather spend a little extra and know it's covered if anything goes wrong.

Perhaps it is covered, I don't have time to look into the full details but if you're going to shell out that money you would be wise to check it out.

IIRC the IS adds 55g of weight to that lens. The non IS version is incredibly light for such an amazing lens.Try both if you can get somewhere that has them in stock, I'm not particularly steady handed but I manage fine. Add a Kenko (or Canon if you're flush) teleconverter if you need more focal length but be aware you'll lose up to 2 stops of light so IS or a tripod is a must.

Thanks for the tip, ill try before I buy!

Have to say a friend of mine has the f2.8 non-IS and he manages to get some incredibly sharp photos.

I can personally vouch for the sigma 10-20
Its a good bit cheaper and lighter but a little bit slower (f-stops). £505 sounds pretty expensive to me. I personally couldn't bring myself to spend that much on a cropped sensor lens for fear of upgrading to 5D at some point in the future. I know the Sigma is for a cropped sensor but isn't as expensive.

Still a hot price if you must have it though.

Im afraid I am a lens snob so the only glass going on my camera has a canon badge on it

I wouldn't worry about the cropped sensor issue. with all the use I get out of my glass I could sell it tomorrow and I wont have lost a huge amount vs the use I've had out of it. I lose far more money on cars than Im likely to lose on glass.

That's what I thought. Personal preference but I would still rather pay a little extra and have it sent back to Canon UK.

I'll be honest, I'm very tempted by the 60D they're showing for £503.99 on one of their adverts.

HOWEVER, I can't make it that price, no matter what link I click on, and as for their lenses, they all seem at least 20% lower than *anywhere* else.

As for that "office", I streetviewed it.... it's not looking good:

The same yorkshire cameras as hotukdeals.com/mis…850 maybe?

Just FWIW, I own this lens (bought it for £650! :p) but I don't begrudge it as I wanted it to take away on holiday the next day and I've taken some truly great shots with it, then and since. A wide angle lens isn't needed by everyone, but allows for some pictures that just wouldn't be possible with the 18mm or so provided by a kit lens. Just be careful if using the wider focal lengths for portraits - the results can start to look unflattering if you're using the edge of the frame!

Your not a proper snob, if you were it would have to have a capital "L" after the name.

This is a great lense if you own a crop sensor Canon. (controversially) I recomend it as the first purchase after a kit lense for anyone looking to build a collection - it's great for any situation where you are going to be close to the subject and as a beginer you are going to be in the wrong place a lot, this lense is very forgiving. The quality of the build will give you a bit of a taste why spending a little more on a lense is worthwhile.

I recomend it over the sigma or other cheaper solutions - because it holds it's value really well.
