Great Value and Useful Focal Range

  • Excerpt: This lens is what I keep on my camera most of the time. I find that this lens is very useful for events. I have used this lens on numerous assignments in tight places and find that I can get the shots my customers like. The 10-24mm zoom range is excellent for the type of shooting I do. I also enjoy using this lens outdoors in landscapes, exaggerated perspective at close in 10mm is a lot of fun to experiment with.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Great value
  • Cons: Focus Ring Sticks

Perfect for real estate listing photos

Jason the Realtor, Adorama
31 August 2014
  • Excerpt: 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.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Great Range For Price
  • Cons: Heavy

Good lens for a great price

April S., Newegg
2 February 2014
  • Summary: The question is whether saving $300 (at the time of this writing, which is February 2014) is worth the slight softening at the edges. The Nikkor is much better and you can see the difference in a comparison. But this lens is pretty good and you may not notice the difference. Note that this is a rectilinear lens, not a fisheye. So your images in a crop (DX) camera will not show as much distortion (image is flat, not circular).
  • Pros: • Low cost, relative to Nikkor lenses • Auto focus • Feels like it has a good construction
  • Cons: • Slight softening at the edges compared to the Nikkor 10-24mm

Wide...Very Wide.

  • 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
  • Cons: Heavy

Best budget Landscape Lens

Baker, B&H Photo
23 November 2012
  • 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.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight
  • Cons: Distortion, Weak Casing

DEFINITELY GOOD VALUE

29 August 2012
  • 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.
