a great lens
4 May 2014
Summary: While this lens performs like it is suppose to, I personally did not know how to use it properly. I expected more range or more roundness in the 10mm spectrum. The pictures where sharp and the lens delivered excellent color. I wanted this lens for landscape but as an amateur I really needed an all a round lens. I kept changing the lens to get closer up to a subject that was in same shot. I wished I had a dedicated body for this lens.
Summary: I bought this lens to shoot the interiors of rooms for real estate photography with my Sony A77. In many cases the room is too small to get anything but two walls with an 18-55mm kit lens. This lens is perfect for what I wanted it to do. Now when I am in a small room I can still get a decent shot from the doorway without the room appearing to be the interior of a box car. I love this lens! It gives a very clean image, no vignetting, and sharp.
Excerpt: I am new to shooting wide angle and the Tamron 10-24 seems to fit what I need. Most of my shooting is landscape and architecture and so far I am happy with the performance and build quality of this lens. The autofocus at close range can be a bit sluggish and noisy which may be a function of this wide of a lens. Finding a great lens at a fair price can be difficult and so far I am very happy.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus
Summary: Takes great photos, If you want a lens that cover a large area, but yet does not distort, this is it. The price is the best thing about it. I have purchased Tamron lenses before and they have yet to displease me, their quality and workmanship is fantastic.
Summary: The lens is decent for the mm and the price but I keep having problems with the lens when I zoom. It does have a small amount of zoom, but if you turn the lens and reach the end of the zoom the lens will momentarily loose connection with the camera and reset your apperature...annoying when you are trying to take pictures. The edge has some blurring to it....think I will stick to the better lenses when it comes to my a77 next time...
One of my favorite lenses of all time as a photographer of 35 years.

Summary: This is my second Tamron 10-24. The last one was severely damaged while photographing in an abandoned house. I fell through a second story floor while I was changing lenses and the lens hit concrete and rolled. When I got the first lens, it quickly became my favorite. It was/is a great lens--sharp, durable (unless it falls 12 feet and hits concrete), seems to be built very well, and finally for me--a lens wide enough. I was completely satisfied with the Tamron.
Excerpt: This lens solved many of my photography problems. On some days I don't even take the lens off my camera. I might shoot 3 or 4 hundred shots. It is compact and has a very high useablitly. The only I would give up this lens if it was replaced with a brand new one with latest innovations.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
