This is my favourite lens next to the Canon 18-135mm STM.
A great non image stabilisation lens for all those super wide angles for Architecture and city scape.
on my 1100d and 70d this lens distance actually comes in at an Ultra-wide angle 15-36mm equivalent focal length range. A very useful size and one that I lament not having on the silk route in 2012/13.
I bought this second hand from from Camera World for a shade under £300 in 2014. It still holds it’s price well.
It’s quite a heavy piece of glass for it’s short range and I do/have found as time goes on that the corners suffer from bad distortion at the widest end, but hey! that will teach me to push it to it’s limits on too many images. It does however do what it says on the tin, and remarkably well.
The front of the lens is a 77mm screw fitting, which does make it expensive if you want to buy filters to fit. The bonus of this is that it doesn’t rotate which does make a bit more user friendly.
I know that Canon have brought out a super STM 10-18mm wide angle lens and surely if I ever have the opportunity I will swap this Tamron out for the Canon version which reportedly has some stunning IQ. Food for thought for the future methinks!?
