EF 17-40 vs EF-S 10-22?
Aug 10, 2011

Could use your help from those with experience with both these lens on a crop camera [T2i].

I have been using the EF-S 10-22 for a year now and find it to be ok, but can't seem to tell from the numerous reviews available, whether I would end up with a sharper lens on the EF 17-40. Most of the reviews on the 17-40 are based on a FF camera, and I'm sure the experience is different on a crop camera.....either for the worse or better.

Presently I find the 10-22 far too soft, giving me the lowest image quality of all the lens I presently own, which are all L-series. Taking all the obvious advantages of moving up to the L-series.....will I notice an increased sharpness on the 17-40 over the 10-22?

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide,
