Excerpt: I favor wide angle lens over other lens because of the types of shooting I do. And I use a crop sensor D3200. This wide angle zoom is great for indoors, landscapes, night, and walk around street photography. It covers one of the largest ranges of all wide angle zoom lens'. With a crop sensor camera the Tamron 10-24mm covers ranges, similar to a 14mm-35mm on a full frame. At 10mm zoom there is a lot of distortion; objects near the edges are stretch.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Wide Angle Zoom Range
Excerpt: I've been using this lens for almost a year now. Initially I was disappointed with how much it stretched subjects at on the corners of shots. I've come a long way since then and have learned to shoot consistently sharp landscape photos with a tripod. This lens feels a little cheaply made but It has survived multiple mountain climbs, fishing trips and even the alaskan wilderness. I have recommended this to 3 of my friends who all have also purchased it.
Excerpt: As an architect, I frequently shoot building interiors and exteriors in very confined conditions. This lens is excellent for my uses and has surprisingly modest distortion for such a wide lens. For the price this is about as good as it gets.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus
Excerpt: 4 stars instead of 5, because it is not the ultimate wide-angle lens. The Nikon was better, from what I remember (on my Nikon D5000, but much more expensive). This lens has a good zoom range and a great aperture range, but it does not do f2.8, and it is slightly soft at f3.5. I shoot with a Sony A55, and they work great together. This lens cost [$]at the time I am writing this, and for that much money, I don't know if it can be beat.
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
Excerpt: ULTRA WIDE ANGLE LENSES ARE THE MOST DIFFICULT OF ALL TO MASTER. BUT THEIR DISTORTION CAN CREATE AWESOME IMAGES QUITE UNLIKE WHAT THE HUMAN EYE "SEES." IT'S DEFINITELY A TERRIFIC LENS FOR THE LOW PRICE. WIDE ANGLE LENSES TEND TO OVEREXPOSE ESPECIALLY OUTDOORS. I'M QUITE SATISFIED.
