Originally posted 2009-04-20 on Optyczne.pl The first wave of ultra wide-angle variable focal length lenses designed for smaller sensors of APS-C/DX and 4/3 format appeared in the years 2004-2005.
The Tamron AF 10-24mm F/3.5-4.5 SP Di II LD Aspherical IF left us unimpressed regarding its performance. There's a significant amount of barrel distortion at all focal lengths, CAs are rather high at the shortest focal length, as is vignetting.

There's a significant amount of barrel distortions at all focal lengths, CAs are rather high, even stopped down and the resolution figures at the borders are somewhat disappointing, especially in...
I've shot about 400,000 shots through this lens and just now replacing. Mechanically the lens is fine I just have some dust inside the lens and figured I needed to replace. This lens has outlived 2.5 camera bodies!
Consistent Output, Durable, Strong Construction
I am new to shooting wide angle and the Tamron 10-24 seems to fit what I need. Most of my shooting is landscape and architecture and so far I am happy with the performance and build quality of this lens.
Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus
This lens was designed to be used on a crop sensor camera, but I chose to use it on my full frame camera. I'm a big fan of vignetting, so at 10mm, I get the vignetting on the sides. At 13mm there's still a little vignetting at the corners, and then none as you increase the focal length.
If you are a photographer you should have either Photoshop or Lightroom which is a must with this lens. It is a good lens and the better the exposure the less you'll have to tweak, but I have yet to get a shot that I could leave untouched. Hence the 4 out of 5 eggs.
Nice wide angle lens for the price, and with rebate the deal is even better. Seems to focus quickly, and is reasonably sharp from f8 up. Great for HDR shots,and Adobe Camera Raw and Lightroom 4 already have a profile for this lens to adjust for the barrel distortion.
Could be Sharper at lower f-stops. Lens cap doesn't like some polarizing filters(doesn't stay on), but no biggie. Chromatic aberration can be strong but the new lens correction tools in either Lightroom 4 or Adobe Camera Raw can eliminate that problem crazy easy.
Useful focal range, but needs a lot of work to produce decent quality images, and even then they are not great. Useless at 10mm.
Extreme wide-angle, fast auto focus, reasonably light
Very soft under 12-13mm, chromatic aberration
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.
Good Optical quality and value for this price range, Excellent and useful zoom range, A lot of fun to use indoors or up close, Good build quality, Lens flare and CA are well controlled in most lighting
Autofocus is a bit slow, Lens Hood is very large, Huge Filter Diameter, Built in Flash is not useable with this lens unless you can deal with the large shadow at the bottom of the frame.
