Tamron 10-24 ultrawide

Tamron 10-24 mm f/3.5-4.5

Tamron has just announced the Tamron SP AF 10–24mm f/3.5-4.5 Di II LD Aspherical (IF), a new ultrawide that should supersede the slower Tamron SP AF11–18mm F/4.5-5.6 Di-II LD Aspherical (IF) which they’ve offered as a wide–angle alternative for Canon and Nikon shooters for a while now.

The range for this ultrawide is better than similar offerings and is even better than the Canon EF–S 10–22 mm, one of the better ultrawide lenses for APS–C cameras. It also shares the same max aperture throughout the range, putting it in direct competition with the Canon lens. If it sells for much less than the Canon 10–22, the Tamron 10–24 should be a good seller especially if it inherits the excellent optical qualities of Tamron’s 28–75 and 17–50 f/2.8 zooms.
