Excerpt: I use it indoor and sometimes outdoor. Its aewesome that it is 10-24mm,...amazing, but the image quality is not the best that you can get. If you need detail on objects that arent that close from the lens, you wont get it. For closer objects the image is clear.
Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
Excerpt: 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.
Excerpt: I've been using this on my a77 for about a year now. The focal length is very useful and I've taken some great shots with this lens. My favorite use is to get right up into the face of my subject and still capture lots of background. I also like to set it on a tripod and get long-exposure night shots with it. The wide angle means you see less streaking in star photos. It's a durable lens that's held up to some considerable abuse, and it's not that heavy.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: This lens is constructed very well and provides a wide angle perspective that is unique, however the edge sharpness is poor. For the casual photographer the image quality will be ok. Not recommended for serious photography because of the acute edge softness.
Excerpt: My first impression when I unpacked the lens was... It looks flimsy. The lens is light and made of plastic. The ring is a metal one at least. Once on the D200 the lack of weight is less of an issue. It focus fairly well. It hunts a bit when trying to focus in dark situations or on subjects with lack o details. Zoom and focus rings are rugged and work well. And I must admit it feels good when using it.
Pros: Sharp center, Strong Construction
Cons: Blurry edes, Blurry Focus, Huge Color Aberration, Poor in Low Light, Weak Casing
Excerpt: This lens takes a good picture and has a relatively wide zoom range. But the lens exhibits quite a bit of chromatic aberration near the edges in high contrast areas. This is common with ultra wide angle lenses. But this one may exhibit more than others.
Excerpt: I really wanted to like this lens and the savings over the Nikkor was nice but, in the end, not worth it. We have other Tamron lenses. Our 24-135mm is one of our favorites. But this one was disappointing.
Excerpt: As every good consumer in this economy does, I did my homework and research to find the best wide angle lens that also incorporated reasonable pricing. The result was my purchase of the Tamron 10-24 DI II. This lens is not touted specifically as a "pro" lens, and on the contrary some say it is geared more toward amateur, but all things being equal, I decided to try it.
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Good overall output, Lightweight
