Manufacturer description: The 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 Di II is Tamron’s ultra-wide angle lens for APS-C SLRs, offering a 15-36mm equivalent range. Optically it’s pretty good, delivering decently sharp images when stopped down to F8, and distortion is notably low. The lens is available in versions to fit almost all current SLRs.

Usefully it's sharpest at the wide end, which is of course what users will be buying it for, although it's no slouch at longer focal lengths either. And while the extreme corners are rather soft, this only affects a very limited region of the frame, and on those rare occasions where it's really a problem, only a slight crop is needed to deal with it.
Good for: A crop-sensor shooter looking for an ultra wide angle with a versatile range - especially for architecture and landscapes.
Not so good for: Users who shoot often in low light environments.
