The Tamron SP AF10-24mm f3.5-4.5 Di II for bodies with APS-C sensors is the ultra-wide angle zoom with the largest zoom range (2.4x) todate. Here's Tamrons announcement:
http://www.tamron.co.jp/en/news/release ... _b001.html
It compares to Sigma 's 10-20mm, 12-24mm (FF/FX), Tokina's and Nikon'2 12-24mm, Canon's 10-22mm and Nikon's 14-24mm zooms.

Looks good, I want to see a comparison between that and the 10-20mm Sigma.

I noticed on a few websites (in the Netherlands) it started shipping for Nikon bodies, is there anyone yet to have it in their posession?

Would like to know if it will be a nice addition to the 18-70 Nikkor (and how it performs compared to the others of course)

Look forward to it!

Nice, thanks for sharing Thomas

Seems good to me to have those extra 4mm on the longer end, tho i would have prefer to have it on the shorter end ie 6mm to 20mm.

The lens' specification page says "Nikon with Built-In-Motor- Available". Haven't seen any reviews, though. :?

The lens has been out or a while. I would like to hear from those who own it. :)

Here's Ken Rockwell's take on it. As with everything you read on the web, take it with a pinch of salt ;).

Amazing range,I was considering it for my future dslr,because of the decent price tag. After I saw a lot of samples,I gave up on the idea. Seriously soft borders & corners. :?

I bought this lens a week ago and it's great.
btw. It's interesting to see how many photographers of Vogue and Time Magazine are among us. Always in need for only the very best image quality ... :wink:

Glad to share around Its picture looks very stunning but wait its that a HDR works. Did you have a Pictures taken with this lens without any PP so at least I can see its natural output

This is only slightly pp'd. As you can see, some softness in the extreme corners but good enough for amateurs.

Here's my gallery of shots from this lens, ranging from early tests in the driveway to travel and scenic shots. Most are not very heavily processed if at all, a few have been tweaked more heavily. For the most part, they are straight from camera:

I almost shied away from this lens with the early reviews...fortunately I had the chance to hands-on test it against the also-good Sigma 10-20. For me, the Tamron seemed to be sharper on center and stopped down, still quite good wide open, and best between about 10-16mm, which is the primary purpose I bought it for. Been very happy with the lens, and used it in many situations.
