Good range,low price alternative

  • Summary: This lens is a decent alternative to the more expensive Canon and Nikon Equivalents, but at a price. Sharpness is only average and exposure accuracy is variable when you zoom. Edges are ok. This is no L or Ed lens by any means, but as long as you don't enlarge the image too much it will do fine.

good for the price

  • Summary: On the used market this lens seems to be lower priced than the Sigma 10-20mm.I got mine for $275, unable to find the Sigma for less than $350-400, or for that matter the much praised Tokinas, either 12-24mm or 11-16mm. So it all depends on how much you paid for it.

Tamron 11-18, an eye-opener for sure.

  • Summary: Bought for real estate photography, with budget as a major consideration. I haven't regretted buying this lens at all, and aside from a tendency to underexpose a little on my EOS 10D (easily corrected on the camera) it's a great performer - solid yet light, quick and accurate to focus, and capable...

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.

Great Lens for landscaping shoot - very wide

Potion99, Amazon
28 June 2009
  • Summary: This is a great lens for landscape it produce very nice vivid colors. I did not notice any vignetting as other in the forums saying also I pick this lens over the new release Tamron 10-24mm, which wider end longer reach and faster aperture f/3.5, because of where the lens is made(not in Japan).

Any port in a storm

  • Summary: While vacationing in San Fransisco, I realized that I needed a wide angle lens pretty desperately. I checked at four or five touristy camera shops (they all seemed kind of shady - the kind that want you to only pay cash).

Tamron 11-18

Richard D. Conti "Pro-sumer", Amazon
29 October 2008
  • Summary: I did a lot of research prior to buying this lens....comparing it to other wide angles etc. It got good ratings and I agree. I use it with my Canon 20D and it performs well. Pics are clean with no major noticable abberations.

I like it

David Kohn "blah blah blah", Amazon

  • Summary: I'm not sure how I would rate the value if I had to pay the normal retail price for this lens, but I got a used one for $350 and I consider it a terrific value. Get consistently good shots with it, even at 11mm using a polarizer -- much less vignetting than I expected.
