SP AF10-24mm F/3.5-4.5 Di II Features

Tamron SP AF60mm F/2 Di II
Portrait macro shot
Lenses are designed for exclusive use on digital cameras with smaller-size imagers and inherit all of the benefits of our Di products. These lenses are not designed for conventional cameras and digital cameras with image sensors larger than 24mm x 16mm.

Super Performance (SP) for Discriminating Shooters
Tamron SP (Super Performance) series is a line of ultra-high-performance lenses designed and manufactured to the exacting specifications demanded by professionals and others who require the highest possible image quality. In creating SP lenses Tamron’s optical designers put their foremost priority on achieving superior performance parameters—they are all designed to a higher standard with little regard for cost constraints. As a result, Tamron lenses bearing the SP designation feature impressive and innovative designs that have established an enviable reputation for excellence among those knowledgeable photographers that demand the very best.

Internal Focus (IF)
Internal focusing (IF) provides numerous practical benefits to photographers including a non-rotating front filter ring that facilitates the positioning of polarizing and graduated filters, and more predictable handling because the lens length does not change during focusing. Even more important, Tamron's Internal Focusing (IF) system provides a much closer minimum focusing distance (MFD) throughout its entire focusing range. In addition, IF improves optical performance by minimizing illumination loss at the corners of the image field, and helps to suppress other aberrations that become more troublesome at different focusing positions.

Low Dispersion (LD) Glass for Greater Lens Sharpness
Low Dispersion (LD)
Low dispersion (LD) glass elements in a lens help reduce chromatic aberration; the tendency of light of different colors to come to different points of focus at the image plane. Chromatic aberration reduces the sharpness of an image, but glass with an extremely lowdispersion index, has less of a tendency to separate (defract) a ray of light into a rainbow of colors. This characteristic allows the lens designer to effectively compensate for chromatic aberration at the center of the field (on axis), a particular problem at long focal lengths (the telephoto end of the zoom range), and for lateral chromatic aberration (towards the edges of the field) that often occurs at short focal lengths (the wide-angle end of the zoom range.)

Aspherical Elements (ASL) Provide the Ultimate in Image Quality and Compactness)
Tamron uses several hybrid aspherical lens elements in many lenses bearing the Aspherical designation. These innovative optics allow us to achieve the ultimate in image quality, and at the same time produce lenses that offer remarkable zoom ranges in extraordinarily compact packages. By perfecting theses cutting-edge advances for series production, Tamron has advanced the state of optical design, and virtually eliminated spherical aberration and image distortion from the high-power-zoom series.Through the effective application of Hybrid Aspherical Technology, one lens elemen tcan take the place of multiple elements without compromising performance. This is what allows us to produce remarkably compact long-range lenses that deliver a uniformly high level of image quality at all focal lengths and apertures.

I highly recommend this lens for anyone wanting a great wide angle picture.
John Cooper
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.
Joseph Parsons
The lens in my opinion has a good quality feel, very nice fit and finish, solidly built and everything works smoothly.

Style Name: Nikon
I'd imagine that many people are shying away from this lens due to some of the reviews. Rockwell's ultra-wide comparison is where I first heard about this lens, and it did not do too favorably there...

I was looking for an ultra-wide lens for Nikon DX format, with easy to correct distortion. I was originally looking for the Tokina 11-16, which has gone up in price considerably several times, and NEVER seems to be available. I was also thinking about the sigma, but the inability to correct the distortion easily wide open didn't make me too happy, and I couldn't find one locally to test. The nikon 10-24 isn't available yet, and the 12-24 is too expensive and not wide enough.

So, I decided to check this lens out at a local photo shop, and I'm glad I did. After a few test shots, I ended up purchasing it. It was sharp enough for my needs - A bit soft wide open, but I never shoot wide angle lenses wide open. F/8 looks near perfect to me on all edges and corners, with some slight color fringing that I REALLY had to look to see. The edges are occasionally soft, but I have only noticed this when I am pixel peeping.

It seems surprisingly well built. Metal mount is always nice, and the focus and zoom both have very good feels to them. It just feels RIGHT in my hands. I haven't drop tested it, and I don't plan to. I could see the AF mechanism going out on a bad drop, but that's just pure speculation.

Another plus - There is MORE than enough room to put whatever UV filter you would like on it with no vignetting. I don't know about filter stacking, but again, I never stack filters.

It does have it's quirks. AF stopped on me once when I was switching back and forth from AF to MF.

Lets face it. You're buying a lens like this to shoot at 10mm, so most of my review will focus around the ultra wide end.

This lens is cool. You can create optically things that don't really exist, and take quite unique photos.

At F3.5 it's surprisingly fast. I've taken some night-time images of Salt Lake with this lens where it had the best control over lights not blossoming into a purple mass (even wide open) of any lens I've got.

My complaints are around CA at 10mm at the edges and corners. I wish it was better controlled. You can fix these in post, but I don't spend the time to PP every photo.

Your other wide options from here are the Sigma 8-16mm and the Sigma 10-20mm (3.5 and 4-5.6) I hear good things about the F3.5 10-20mm.

All in all, I'm happy with this purchase at this price. It's good enough for what I want to shoot with it at ultra wide, and when I want more, I'll switch to the DA 15mm Limited or the DA* 16-50.

Style Name: Canon Verified Purchase
I have a Canon EOS20D and have always been a little frustrated by the 1.6x sensor factor. I'm used to a 50mm lens being "normal". I have used this lens for dramatic landscapes with a closer object of interest to add depth, as well as for portraits where I want to bring in more of the surroundings. In both cases it produces very sharp, impressive images. I am comparing them to my Canon macro/portrait lens (which is a very good lens).

The Tamron 10-24 is a superb lens that provides a very wide field of view with little distortion. Obviously, there is some distortion of the image, especially for the closer objects in relation to those further away. But overall, the images corner-to-corner look very good.

Some reviewers have said the lens suffers from a little lack of sharpness, but I have not found that to be the case, even at small f stops. I typically try to shoot at around f8 or f11 to maximize sharpness.

I did notice some diffraction limited softness when shooting at the very smallest apertures that are needed to get the kind of impressive depth of field shots that are possible with this lens. But all systems "suffer" from diffraction limits.

Occasionally the autofocus gets confused, so I suppose I could take away one * for that, but it is not any worse than any other autofocus lenses I have.

Make sure you order the lens type that is compatible with your camera.

Style Name: Nikon Verified Purchase
I owned the Tamron 17-50, and 28-75 when I shot Canon. Both were fine lenses. This Tamron isn't. Having faith in Tamron, I purchased this lens without thinking twice. I wish I had read the reviews before seeing my own images. The optics are unacceptably poor. Based on my images, and other reviews, I don't think it was a sample problem. No front/back focusing problems, no decentering problems, and no side to side problems - just poor optics across the board. The lens is nice and light, and the zoom control is great - very smooth and nicely spaced, but the optics are just unacceptable.

The good news is that you don't need to spend $800 plus on the Nikon 12-24. I replaced this Tamron with the Sigma 10-20, and it's a fine lens. In addition to much better optics, it also focuses much faster, much quieter, and hunts much less than the Tamron. If you shoot Canon, get their EF-S ultra wide. It's great, and not that much more money.

This is the only review I've ever written. It's the first thing I've ever had to return due to poor quality. Thank goodness for Amazon.
