Summary: Many other reviews said it was a nice lens for the money and I totally agree. I use it for taking interior photo of my real estate listings and have been very happy with the quality of the photos even though I need to photoshop many of the photos to straighten out the curvature of the photos. I am happy I bought the lens.
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.
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: All of the usual complaints about this lens, (it's soft on the edges, it has a limited sweet spot, it's not fast, etc.) are true. However, when used within it's limits it delivers great pictures.
Summary: Good lens, sharp focus and excellent color rendition. I have noticed a good deal of color artifacts on high contrast edges at the extreme ends of the range, but this is not uncommon with zoom lenses. Use it in architectural and landscape work to good effect.
Excerpt: Mostly used in landscape and architecture shots; not too many so far only had it about 3 weeks. So far little distortion (expected in this wide angle) in the corners, very good color rendition; focusses fairly fast with Sony a77.
Pros: Acceptable Distortion, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Fast focus, Lightweight
