Review summary from DPReview

DPReview Tested February 2009
With the broad zoom range and reasonable price, it's worthy of a place on the shortlist for anyone looking to buy an ultra-wide zoom for their APS-C camera.
Andy Westlake Andy Westlake

Conclusion

Usefully it's sharpest at the wide end, which is of course what users will be buying it for, although it's no slouch at longer focal lengths either. And while the extreme corners are rather soft, this only affects a very limited region of the frame, and on those rare occasions where it's really a problem, only a slight crop is needed to deal with it.

Reasons to buy

  • Widest lens and largest zoom range in its class
  • Low distortion
  • Generally good resistance to flare

Things to consider

  • Soft corners at all focal lengths and apertures
  • Large lens hood takes up lots of space in a bag

Suggested for

A crop-sensor shooter looking for an ultra wide angle with a versatile range - especially for architecture and landscapes.

Not suggested for

Users who shoot often in low light environments.

Di II
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'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.

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.

I love the perspective a 10mm provides on my Canon 50D. For the money this lens provides good results and is quite comparable to the Canon 10-22mm for far less money. The Canon lens is in no way twice the performance though the price is nearly twice as much.

Sharpness - A lot of mixed reviews in this regard. I can say that my copy provides a large sweet spot of sharpness at 10mm from center out. The corners are quite soft however this does not affect my shooting style. I prefer close in subjects at 10mm and enjoy this perspective. For landscapes, and night scenes, I have achieved pleasing results.

My lens is at its sharpest at f5.6 - f8. In the center f3.5 is sharp but the sweet spot of sharpness is a bit smaller.

For an ultra wide lens, flare and CA are nicely controlled. The most significant CA is evident in the extreme corners.

Focus - Performance is good, even in low light. The motor is a bit more noisy than the Ultra-sonic type autofocus, but the focus speed and accuracy are quite good. The focus ring does turn on this model. The front element does not turn while focusing.

24mm performance is OK, and is useful in some situations. I have found that close in, pseudo-macro results can be acheived. I have read other reviews that claim close up 24mm performance is not good, but I have had good results in this scenario.

Overall - a good choice in a useful focal range and a good value. I would recommend this lens.
When used correctly, this lens provieds very good results.
