Good deal on this and a big price drop - has been hovering between £300 and £400 on Amazon although I believe has been as low as £250 at other retailers in the past.

There has been a newer model released (with improved image stabilisation) but it's £580!

This is a good deal for a wide angle lens - I already have the Canon 10-18mm otherwise I probably would have gone for this as this has the advantage of the extra reach (24mm vs 18mm).

  • Ultra wide-angle lens builds on the concept of Tamron's lengendary 11-18 mm F4.5-5.6
  • Optimal Performance designation for photographers who demand the very best in image quality
  • Hybrid aspherical elements ensure distinct image quality and compactness
  • Low Dispersion lens elements for optimum image sharpness and the correction of chromatic aberration

Superb lens for the money!
This is my 'day to day' walk around lens nowadays, even more useful than the 18-55
anything similar for a nikon, not too familiar with cameras
Great price. This is a steal.

Thanks, Amazon probably price matched this - have updated the deal to include both options

I'm not sure why you'd buy this instead of the Canon 10-18. It's sharper, quieter, got IS and is almost the same price.

Got any reviews? I'm keen to get a decent wide angle and was about to push the trigger on the Tamron

All the reviews I've seen have been great. It's a bit plastic and not the widest aperture but for a cheap wide lens it's pretty special. I had the Tamron some time ago and never got on with it. At the widest aperture it was really soft and even stopped down to f8 - f11 it wasn't great. I might have had a duff one but I think you are more likely to have a pup from Tamron than with Canon.

The extra 33% reach at the "long end" will appeal to some people. I'm absolutely in agreement with you about the superiority of the 10-18mm as an extra wide, but reaching that 35mm equiv makes the 10-24mm a more viable all-purpose lens.

I can't dig out reviews while I'm out on my phone, but have a look around. The 10-18 is a stunning lens for such a small amount of money.
10mm is so great......this is such a great price although Tamron service is shocking..........and expensive. Just bear in mind once out of warranty.

Still doesn't detract from price.

Hot!
I wonder how this compares to the Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L USM Lenswhich is 10x the price.

Ok, I'll pass as it is designed for crop sensors.

Tamron's high end products are very good - I'd buy again.

As for the crop sensor lenses, you could well be right - I used Sigma on a crop sensor camera before moving to full frame
Got it for Nikon. Good lens. Feels a solid lens

For inexpensive Nikon ultra-wides you've got the Tamron 10-24mm, Sigma 10-20mm, Tokina 11-16mm and Nikon 10-20mm all for around £300-£350, nothing in the £200 range though unless you're happy to buy used.
Already got the excellent EFS 11-22 so I've bought this for my crop Canon.
Great price, thanks OP.
