Re: Tamron 15 30VC

I missed this thread while on holiday, but I feel it's just worth echoing the message from the OP. The Tamron is an exceptional UWA lens optically (it outperforms my copy of the 14-24, though bear in mind I do landscape and interiors with UWA, not astro). It's a bit slower to focus than the 14-24, and a touch heavier, but I'm very happy I bought one based on its results thus far.

I Just received this lens yesterday, and shot a few inside as it was raining outside, and was surprised at how good the lens performs inside at 15mm. The only thing done in post was adjust exposure as it was a bit underexposed. There is slight distortion noticeable on the right edge, but a lot better than I was expecting. Corner sharpness is ok at wide open.
