Great overall lens.

This is a good one that will likely become another win for Tamron. It focuses slightly faster than other Tamron's I've owned, probably due to its wider FL. It does flare pretty badly at the 24mm end when sun is near the edge of the frame (not in the frame). It also has the effect of reducing contrast somewhat. I have pretty high standards for lenses and for my crop bodies, this one is going to stay, happily.

exposure problems on Nikon D-40

Purchased this lens for Nikon D-40 because of awesome wide-angle range, and because it was purported to work on my camera. Every time I switch from portrait to landscape or back, the exposure is about 7 stops too dark. If I shake the camera a bit the exposure comes back online, but becomes very dark again the next change in orientation. Very annoying. When the exposure works, the lens is a huge amount of fun and gets the pictures I need. However, I often need to take the same photo 2-3 ti

Purchased this lens for Nikon D-40 because of awesome wide-angle range, and because it was purported to work on my camera.

If I shake the camera a bit the exposure comes back online, but becomes very dark again the next change in orientation. Very annoying. When the exposure works, the lens is a huge amount of fun and gets the pictures I need. However, I often need to take the same photo 2-3 times to get the lens and camera to talk to each other. This is annoying enough that I will replace the lens with a Nikon 10-24 ASAP.

Perfect for real estate listing photos


I purchased this lens primarily for use in my business as a Realtor. I love wide angle shots for showing the whole room in my listings. This lens is perfect for the price. I noticed some softness / blurring in the extreme edges when used at 10mm. Not sure if my skills (lighting) could improve to overcome this. I don't know if the Nikkor would do any better, as other wide lenses I've used have this same phenomenon. I DO know that this lens is just what I needed and at nearly 1/2 the price of the Nikkor (purchased used from Adorama) I also LOVE adorama's used equip grading system. This one had an "E" rating, but looks new to me!


Great Lens at a fair price


I am new to shooting wide angle and the Tamron 10-24 seems to fit what I need. Most of my shooting is landscape and architecture and so far I am happy with the performance and build quality of this lens. The autofocus at close range can be a bit sluggish and noisy which may be a function of this wide of a lens. Finding a great lens at a fair price can be difficult and so far I am very happy.

A wonderful addition to my camera bag


This lens solved many of my photography problems. On some days I don't even take the lens off my camera. I might shoot 3 or 4 hundred shots. It is compact and has a very high useablitly. The only I would give up this lens if it was replaced with a brand new one with latest innovations.

2nd Choice


Bought this for a trip to Sedona Az to compare with the Tokina 11-16. The Tamron has a longer zoom range which is nice and is lighter in weight but I preferred the build quality of the Tokina. Tokina also has a new 12-24 which I'll try before deciding. The Nikon 10-24 is also a great lens with the widest range but is $300 more than the other choices. The Tamron is going back.


Glad I bought it!


I use this lens for landscapes, group photos and street scenes. It works well for all of these situations. It and my Tamron 18-270 are the only lens I need.


Best in this price range


Corner softness is acceptable, as well as chromatic aberration. Fast and accurate focus. Considering the price and the solid construction, it's the best lens around in this price range.

Tamron 10mm-24mm f3.5-4.5 Zoom Lense


Purchased this lense for a Canon 7D. A decent no frills lense for the price. Some distortion in 22-24mm end of range, but not bad for the price. A fun lense that produced some nice wide angle, full room shots. Wide angle lenses generally pick up extraneious fingers and straps easily, so be careful when composing shots. Canon lenses are generally preferable, but more expensive. Switched out the Tiffen kit filter with a better Hoya 77mm filter. Would overall recommend this lense unless you are a high end photographer with high expectations.


Good moderate price wide angle


Mostly used in landscape and architecture shots; not too many so far only had it about 3 weeks. So far little distortion (expected in this wide angle) in the corners, very good color rendition; focusses fairly fast with Sony a77.

Couldn't Afford a Nikon. Next Best Lens.


Purchased this lens for my office. Budget couldn't handle another Nikon lens but this is great for event shots.


High quality lens


Using this lens for real estate photography, interior, exterior and pans. Works great with my 7D and speedlites. Distortion can be an issue simply because it is a wide angle lens, but not a fault of Tamron design as such.


Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  I have a Nikon D40 and have ordered the Nikon 10-24 but it is on delayed back order due to the tsunami issues. No clue when it will be available. Is the Tamron 10-24 the best alternative or should I wait for the Nikon? I am a novice shooter.
GREGORY M  As an advanced non- pro photographer, I find the Tamro 10-24 more than adequate for the work I do. There are certain lenses and type of shooting that I do prefer Nikon - these are the 70-200 2.8 for indoor sports and the longer telephotos for wildlife. However, the Tamron macro lenses are great. Greg Murrey Minnesota
Shopper  I have a Nikon D7000 and am new to photography. I am looking for a lens for landscape and for taking pictures of my daughter on stage with her chorus group where I can zoom in on faces but still get the wide angle/ stage in the picture. Is this lens going to work for me? I am new and still trying to figure out the ' lens lingo'. Thanks for any help
THEODORE B  I only use this lens sparingly. I have both a D50 and a D90 and the lens works flawlessly on both. My pictures are crystal clear and the lens does exactly what I want. I only shoot in JPEG and do not adjust except for cropping. Most of my pictures are taken above 10mm since it is usually too wide and the 24mm overlaps nicely with my Tamron 18-270 which I and my sister-in-law both use and have receive favorable comments from other photographers while vacationing. Ted
NADEGE B  is it compatible with full frame Nikon camera? I don't want to loose any angle.
LARRY B  I use it on my D800, uncropped, (though it was bought for my wife's D7000) and the vignetting stops at 15mm focal length giving it roughly the same angle of view on the two cameras. It is, in my experience, an exceptionally sharp lens.
