The Tamron SP designation is reserved for lenses developed with special emphasis on extraordinary photographic performance. Engineers are free to innovate in an uncommon atmosphere where optical performance comes before price, resulting in lenses that satisfy the demands of discerning photographers.
Tamron was first to offer the 10-24mm ultra wide-angle 2.4X zoom perspective for digital SLRs, successfully resolving numerous optical engineering challenges. Rendering picture angles approximating 16 to 37mm in the 35mm (film) or full-frame DSLR formats, landscapes, streetscapes, architecture and confining interiors come to life beautifully. Images exhibit negligible distortion in normal use, but—if the photographer chooses—spectacular effects can be introduced by disregarding the camera’s relationship to level.
Recommended for APS-C photographers who…
– Appreciate the visual power of wide-angle perspectives.
– Need to break the barriers that inhibit shooting interiors such as real estate listings—easily and faithfully.
– Want an expanded ability to create a personal shooting style.
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. Rely on Tamron Di lenses designed for digital SLR cameras.
