5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic lens for the price, 22 July 2010
This review is from: Tamron SP AF 10-24mm F/3.5-4.5 Di II LD Aspherical Lens for Nikon (Electronics)
I guess if you are are reading this you may be wondering if it's a better alternative to the Niko own brand wide-angle lens (retailing at £650) or the Sigma 10-20mm alternative. I can't answer I'm afraid. I'm not made of money and the shop wouldn't let me trial all three!

I can say that I love this lens in its own right. It's fairly light (but with a still a weighty quality in the hand) with a clean smooth action. The photos I have taken (using a Nikon D5000) have been superb. As with all zoom lenses there are always going to be compromises in ultimate quality - the outer edges of the photo are not so sharp as the central portions but it's so minor as not make a difference. At times the auto focus is a little slow but I prefer to use manual focus on the the very wide angle shots as it gives you more control. The fact it zooms to 24mm also means you are not always changing lenses (a problem I've heard owners of the Sigma lens have) to get shots.

Unless you are going to be spending all of your time photographing landscapes, it is likely that as a secondary lens this will meet all of your requirements for a wide angled lens, especially if you are on a budget.
