Tamron 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 Di II LD SP AF review by Scottelly
6 October 2012
Summary: While I have not done a lot of testing, this lens does seem to give a sharp image, when stopped down a couple of stops. It is a little soft, especially in the corners, at wider f-stops, but at f8 and f11 it is good . . . maybe even quite sharp. I do not have anythig to compare it with though, since the last time I had a lens this wide was on my 12 megapixel Canon 5 D, and this lens seems as sharp as those lenses were at f8 (Canon 17-40mm f4 L and Sigma 12-24mm f4.5-6.5...
Pros: Solid, lens hood fits well with positive click, good range from 15-36mm equiv.
Cons: A little heavy, but it is lighter than others, so I guess compared to the competition this is not really a con.
Tamron 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 Di II LD SP AF review by Tord
5 September 2010
Summary: Had it for a few months, and the only reason I don't bring it along as often I should, is it's bulk, almost as big as my Tamron 90, which I prefer to bring along! The good side is that it is very resistant to flare, focuses fairly fast and seems very rugged. With its lenshood on it takes a lof of room, about the same as a compact 300!
Pros: Feels rugged, and sharp
Cons: A bit big, not least compared to similar lenses from Olympus!
Summary: Great product, great price, good looking and easy to use. During a recent trip to Barcelona (where streets are very narrow) my 18-55mm lens didn't provide a wide enough angle to get nice pictures of entire buildings. With this Tamron lens I wouldn't have had that issue. Just used it in Central Park and the pictures are just awesome (and wide enough for landscape photography)... and the price helped a lot.
Summary: I managed to get this for £300 and at that price for UK stock this is an incredible bargain. The build quality is incredible for the money and compared to the Nikon made lens the difference in image quality does not reflect the difference in price... for students and enthusiasts this can not be beaten for the money... RECOMMENDED !!!
Summary: This Lens has transformed the way some of my Landscape photography is rendered.It has allowed me to shoot in ways I could only dream of before.Quality is maintained over most of the zooming range with only a small amount of distortion at wider f stops.Having only used large format equipment in the past this lens has proved to me that digital can produce excellent results.
It looks to be a useful wide angle for my digital camera

Summary: So far only used this lens to make a few practice shots, I had read all the relevant reviews of this and similar lenses, it looks to be a useful wide angle for my digital camera and so far results are very promising. Can't wait to get out and use it!
