Excellent lens (Glad I didn't spend more!)

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.
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.
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
Summary: My title says it all. I have a Canon Rebel camera and wanted the ability to take photos for Real Estate. I went to various camera/lens websites and the Tamron seemed to was the most recommended for my purposes. I can tell you it does a GREAT job. I popped the lens on and, combined with the auto-focus, was taking GREAT room pictures that capture the room without any noticeable distortion or shadows.
Summary: Does everything I wanted it to do. The wide angle effect is outstanding as well as the clarity of the pictures. I was somewhat hesitant because I did not want to spend a lot of money on a lens of this type but I am very glad I did.
