About Tamron 10-24mm

The new SP AF10-24mm F/3.5-4.5 Di II LD Aspherical (IF) is an advanced ultra wide-angle zoom lens that is versatile and offers even higher performance and specifications than the current Tamron SP AF11-18mm F/4.5-5.6 zoom lens.

The lens covers an extended focal length range that is particularly wide for an ultra wide-angle zoom lens, while improving the aperture to F/3.5-4.5 and keeping the filter diameter to 77mm. Its lightweight and compact size makes this new wide-angle zoom very user friendly.

The lens was designed for use with digital SLR cameras and thereby employs special optical glass materials for outstanding optical performance such as large-aperture glass-molded aspherical elements and hybrid aspherical elements.



The Tamron 10-24mm is commonly used for Landscape/scenery and more.

Good Replacement for Pentax

After research, I purchased this lens instead of the equivalent Pentax ultra-wide zoom. I use it for creative HDRI effects while shooting landscapes and buildings. The bokeh is very decent, and center resolution is very good at all focal lengths. Edge resolution is acceptable when stopped down. The barrel distortion is considerable throughout. Chromatic aberration is highest at 10mm, but this is pretty easy to fix in post processing. This lens is a fine ultra wide choice for casual shooting a

Perfect for real estate listing photos

By

from Charleston, SC  -  Photo Enthusiast

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

By

from Key West, Fl  -  Photo Enthusiast

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

By

from Vancouver, WA  -  Photo Enthusiast

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

By

from Chicago  -  Semi-pro Photographer

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!

By

from Baltimore, Md  -  Photo Enthusiast

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

By

from Brazil  -  Photo Enthusiast

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

By

from Detroit, MI  -  Photo Enthusiast

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

By

from Dayton OH  -  Photo Enthusiast

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.

By

from Los Angeles  -  Photo Enthusiast

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

High quality lens

By

from Kansas  -  Pro Photographer

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.
