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: Always bought canon lenses so was a bit worried purchasing this lens but looked at the canon equivalent and decided to give this lens a go instead. Not disappointed in the least and actually bought another tamron lens soon after this arrived.
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!
Summary: I bought this specifically for a trip to Rome, and I barely took it off the camera the whole time I was there. The quality is outstanding - and some of the low light shots that I achieved were way above and beyond my technical capability to produce ! I'd thoroughly recommend this lens.
Summary: Initially I did think I might be taking a risk buying this lens, particularly after ordering it and finding several reviews which remarked upon the "softness" of the images produced! Well you can judge for yourselves as I have added the images I took of Quarry House to the images for this product, and I personally am very pleased with the results.
