This ultra wide-angle zoom lens for digital SLR cameras, with the first-ever focal length range of 10-24mm -- the 35mm equivalent of 16mm ultra wide-angle to 37mm semi-wide-angle -- is a perfect tool for creating dramatic landscape, cityscape, and seascape imagery. At the ultra wide-angle setting, you'll be able to capture vistas beyond what the eye can see. At the semi-wide-angle setting, you'll capture scenes with angles of view almost as spectacular.
SP (Super Performance) Series Tamron SP (Super Performance) series is a line of ultra-high-performance lenses designed and manufactured to the exacting specifications demanded by professionals and others who require the highest possible image quality.
Internal Focusing (IF) System Internal focusing (IF) provides numerous practical benefits to photographers including a non-rotating front filter ring that facilitates the positioning of polarizing and graduated filters, and more predictable handling because the lens length does not change during focusing. Even more important, Tamron’s Internal Focusing (IF) system provides a much closer minimum focusing distance (MFD) throughout its entire focusing range. In addition, IF improves optical performance by minimizing illumination loss at the corners of the image field, and helps to suppress other aberrations that become more troublesome at different focusing positions.
Aspherical Elements The optical system within this lens uses three large-aperture glass-molded aspherical lenses and three hybrid aspherical lenses to minimize spherical aberrations, coma, and distortion, delivering a remarkably compact lens with a uniformly high level of image quality at all focal lengths and apertures.
Low Dispersion (LD) Glass Elements The Tamron SP AF10-24mm F/3.5-4.5 Di-II LD Aspherical [IF] lens features 2 Low Dispersion (LD) glass elements to help reduce chromatic aberration for superior image sharpness.
Digitally Integrated (Di-II) Lens Optimized for APS-C Format Digital SLR Cameras Tamron Di-II lenses are engineered expressly for digital SLR cameras with image sensors commonly referred to as APS-C, measuring approximately 24mm x 16mm. Rendering an ideal image circle for APS-C sensors, Di-II lenses also include properties to optimize digital imaging performance.
