Excerpt: I have only had the lens for 10 days or so. I decided to replace my tokina 11-16 with this one for the zoom range (the tokina is also very good and well built). I do not regret it despite the price difference. Very sharp and versatile. I have used it for fall pictures and it produces excellent photos. So far so very good.
Excerpt: This is the widest and best lens I now own. The pictures are outstanding. I cannot believe how much closer to the naked eye things look with this lense. It captures so much more width than any lens I've previously used. Just returned from Italy shooting cathedral ceilings and they look amazing!
Excerpt: I originally bought the tamron 10-24 mm from a local shop and wasn't happy with it. It had vignetting and slightly blurry on one side of the frame. But this lens is sharp sharp and way higher quality in craftsmenship alone. Well worth the extra $. I look forward to buying my next nikon brand lens.
Excerpt: Love this lens. Great focus control and image quality. Light-weight and not too big. Thought it might be a heavy lens, but no. Very easy to use and allows me to get real close to my subjects (within inches), without resorting to a macro lens.
