Can This Popular Lens Keep Up With the Demands of a Modern Camera?

In the DSLR days, Canon made a few surprising good wide angle lenses for their APS-C cameras, one of which was the EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM, which offered a versatile focal length range in a portable and affordable package. Can it keep up with the demands of a modern high-resolution sensor, though? This excellent video review takes a new look at the lens and the sort of performance and image quality you can expect from it. 

Coming to you from Christopher Frost, this great video review takes a look at the Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM on the Canon EOS R7. With an equivalent focal length range of 16-35mm, the EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 is tailor-made for genres like landscape photography. And at 13.6 oz (385 g) and $649, it is both quite portable affordable, making it an ideal companion for long hikes or walkaround photography. While it does struggle a bit with the 32.5-megapixel sensor inside the EOS R7, it still produces quite good images that are plenty workable for the majority of needs and applications, and for video work, it is a fantastic choice. Check out the video above for Frost's full thoughts on the lens.

I guess everyone has a different definition of "affordable"?
