  • Summary: Love this lens! Good glass, nice feel, focuses well, fun to use! Nothing I don't like! Just make sure the one you're looking at has the factory lens hood... They're about $30, that is, if you can FIND one!

A very good lens but limited zoom range

  • Summary: I have gotten excellent results from this lens and the only issue is the limited range of 11-18. Eventually I bought Tamron's 10-24/3.5-4.5 lens and I've had no regrets as the results with the 10-24 are excellent. The 11-18 necessitated too many lens changes. If your shooting includes a high proportion of shots in the 11-18 range OR you only have very occasional use for this lens, it will be a great investment.

Sharper than expected

  • Summary: I tried out the Tokina 12-24mm f4 II first but found that my sample had a bad right edge at 12mm. I also hoped it would have a wider field of view. This Tamron 11-18 has no soft edges even wide open and the image is noticable wider than Tokina. Matched with my 17-85mm and 100-300mm L lenses, I can shoot every subject with complete confidence.

Quality Wide Angle at an affordable price!

  • Summary: I bought this Tamron lens for taking pictures of landscapes and architecture. I paid a little over 300.00 dollars for it and it was money well spent. There is very little distortion and it takes super sharp pictures on my D90. A good lens for the money. Highly recommended for landscape and architecture pictures.

Great lens at a good price

  • Summary: This is the 3rd Tamron lens in my bag. I enjoy their durable construction and smooth focus. OK they do weigh a lot, but the QUALITY of the metal constuction is worth it. The autofocus is fast and accurate. There is vignetting below 15 mm with the supplied lens hood, but without it, none occurs all the way down to 11 mm. I bought the lens to follow the remodeling of my house. I have noticed very little distortion in the low range.
