Tamron SP AF10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 Di II LD Aspherical (IF) 35mm Zoom 


Di II: 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. 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.

Built in Flash is not useable with this lens unless you can deal with the large shadow at the bottom of the frame.

I enjoy using this lens. The perspective is fantastic. The distortion at 10mm is hardly noticeable unless you are in close. The usual assumption is that lens of this type is best for landscapes, but this lens is also excellent for those close in shots also. With the 10-24 mm focal range you have a highly versatile lens when you don't require telephoto. This lens performs very well in the mid aperture range at 10 mm from f6 to f16. Super sharp in the center. Softness begins to show close to the cormers and edges, but I have not found this to be a significant problem with my Canon 50D.

Customer Service

Fortunately my experience with Customer Service is limited on this product. Product registration requires faxing in receipts, and registering on line. While this process was a little inconvenient, I did receive a quick response when the process was complete.
