Tamron AF 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 Di-II Ultra Wide Angle Lens
I´m quite impressed with this lens although my personal opinion is that it does´nt excel at landscape photography.I had originally bought it for that particular type of photography, so I was a little bit disappointed at first. It works well enough for urban landscapes, but with vistas it lacks clarity and sharpness. However it can be put to dozens of other uses other than landscapes to great effect.
For what i call “quirky” photography it is excellent (in my opinion), as in this image of a sewing machine (and previous post). I use a Canon 60mm Macro for product photography but where super sharp detail is´nt a necessity, this lens can produce some great product images. I like in-close photography and this lens does it for me, urban and people work well with this lens also, however it is impossible to use in a discreet way, so in that environment it is definitely an “ ask permission to photograph” lens!
