The ultimate extended-range, ultra-wide-angle zoom lens! Wider and longer than others in its class, this compact, lightweight, high-performance lens for DSLRs with APS-C size sensors provides 35mm equivalent coverage from 16mm ultra-wide to 37mm semiwide, a remarkable 2.4X zoom ratio. With a maximum coverage of over 108°, this state-of-the-art classic is the perfect solution for expanding your visual horizons.
This ultra wide-angle zoom lens for digital SLR cameras, with the first-ever focal length range of 10-24mm-the 35mm equivalent of 16mm ultra wide-angle to 37mm semi-wide-angle-is a perfect tool for creating dramatic landscape, cityscape,a nd seascape imagery. At the ultra wide-angle setting, you'll be able to capture vistas beyond what the eye can see. At the semi-wide-angle setting, you'll capture scenes with angles of view almost as spectacular.
SP AF10-24mm F/3.5-4.5 Di II Features
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 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.

-Cheap, compared to the original Canon wide-angle lenses (10-22 f/3.5-4.5 for APS-C, 16-35 f/2.8 for FFs)
-Nice focal length, 10-24mm 2.4X zoom (for wide-angles)
-Common filter size, 77mm
-Many monture options (for Canon, Nikon, Pentax...)
-Solid metallic structure, not as other lenses with plastic montures that make them feel cheap and fluffy
-Includes a Petal-type lens hood, not as many other lenses that you must get apart the lens hood (and Canon's are expensive compared to other trademarks!)
-No vignettism or chormatical aberration
-Compatible with many filters (I use the Hoya HD CPL 77mm) with no vignettism.
-Nice contrast in the pictures, great colours and nice definition.
-It's composition make's it very light!
-Mostly made of plastic
-Variable aperture (f/3.5-4.5)
-Non professional lens
-Autofocus is a bit slow and quite noisy (do not speck for an USM L lens for this price)
In an overall construction I must say that this lens is simply awesome, if you are looking for a nice wide-angle lens (amateur or semi-pro) this is THE lens you have been looking for. Compared to the Sigma's proposals or the Tokina's, this Tamron is on the top of the third party options for wide-angles lenses. Obviously it's not a 16-35 f/2.8 L lens (1600$ more or less) construction, but it's a competitive APS-C construction in the market, for me the best! Do not hesitate on getting one, this is THE lens you have been looking for.
With my husbands personal shooting experience he says that this lens is sharpest at f5.6 - f8. but the sweet spot of sharpness is a bit smaller.
Flare is nicely controlled and most significant in the corners.
Focus - Performance is good, even in low light. The focus speed and accuracy are quite good. The focus ring does turn on this model. He has pointed out that front element does not turn while focusing, not sure if that would be an issue for others.
24mm performance useful in some situations. He has found that close in can be acheived. I have read other reviews that claim close up 24mm performance is not good, but he says that he has found that this serves just fine.
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.
What drew my attention most in the shots I captured with this lens was the sky. I can capture huge landscapes *and* an amazing cloudscape in one shot. That in itself has changed the way I think about scene composition, and has opened up new worlds for me in that regard. [Note: If you haven't shot at this focal length before, hit up Bing for some useful tips. The ultra wide angle causes some interesting effects as the camera pitch moves farther above or below the horizon.]
One thing you may find is that the wide angle will capture an area filled with a diverse range of highlights and shadows. You probably don't want to use a circular polarizer on a wide angle lens, but a good ND and/or Graduated ND filter can help even things out if you need it. The down side is that the quality 77mm filters needed by this lens can get a bit pricey.
In short, if you are at all interested in outdoor scenery shots I recommend that you get this lens. You will not be disappointed.
For reference, I own a Canon 7D.
