I purchased this lens and I have had no issues while shooting. It's a great wide angle lens at an affordable price. Crystal clear images, fast focusing. One of the best lenses I own!

I chose this lens for it's value and zoom range.  It's hard to beat in those two areas. First, I've encountered auto-focusing issues, but only at 10mm.  When shooting at 10mm, the autofocus goes to 3ft.  I've read a few places that ultra-wide lenses have issues with auto-focus and that this is to be expected.  I've considered sending it back to Tamron (and still may), but I've also read that others have done this and have received it back in the same condition.  I don't know if this is a ...

It does struggle in low light conditions, and should definitely not be used for any type of close up portrait photography (Unless you are going for that kind of a look). The focus ring it not as tight as I would have liked, and you can struggle to find the ...

Simply put, the option to have a wider shot gives you the option to "show more." And "more" can be a good thing. Got this lens for taking open spaces, landscapes and Architecture stuff. By itself, the lens performs reasonably fast on focus (am using a Nikon). Though, not exceptionally sharp (espcially compared to the Nikkor lenses), it still is alright. Especially, with a 16 megapixel picture, if you want to get pixel picky, the images are indeed "soft". However, overall at a glance, the ...
