    Cons: Somehow disappointingly soft when wide open. Even in midrange the edges seem to be soft. Some chromatic aberration evident in strong light. At 16-24mm it performs very weak when compared to the 16-80mm Carl Zeiss.

    Pros: Ideal for panoramics with lots of overlapping. Close up performance is very good but not comparable to the likes of the 16-80mm Carl Zeiss.

    Summary: Not really a lens to get excited about.

    Cons: None so far.

    Pros: Works perfect and gives great results on a Nikon D5000. Lightweight for the camera chasis. At least the results I got are excellent so far and corner softness, CA and PF remain indeed in very low levels, lower than the Sigma and Tokina.

    Summary: After reading many reviews about Sigma 10-20. Tokina 11-16 and Tamron 10-24, I was waiving between the Sgma and Tokina. After downloading and comparing sample images from all three of them, I decided to go for the Tamron. After taking my own test pictures with the Tamron 10-24, I'm glad I saved around 250 Euros, the extra money the other two lenses cost approximately. Not exactly what some reviews said. To me it looks much better in real life than running the results through a software analyzer.

    Cons: Pronunciated CA wide open on all focal. Soft wide open. Bulky hood.

    Pros: Focal lenght from 10 to 24mm is very usefull. Sharp at center but soft at corners. Not USM but focus is very quick. Distorsion well controlled for a wide lens.

    Summary: Very good lens. It's quite close to Sigma and other wide angle lenses.
