      Hi,

      Did you get feedback on your question regarding the underwater use of the Canon EFS 10-22mm lens?

      I consider buying the Canon lens but read that the Tokina 10-17mm fish-eye lens is the most popular lens for underwater use.

      I do not dive that much (about 15-20 dives per year) and am not sure if the Tokina is a good option because it is mainly use for underwater shooting. The 180 degrees FOV of the Tokina is great, but I do not like the bending lines of the images.

      On the other hand, the Canon lens does not produce bended lines and it can be used above water. My concern is that the canon lens is not wide enough.

      The Sigma 8-16mm lens is also an option, but apparently it is not sharp if used at 8-10mm.

      Do you have any advice?

      Thank you

      Hermie
