For their Tamron 10-24 review, SLRGear used a Nikon D200.

Their review conclusion reads:

There’s no denying that with a focal range of 10-24mm, the Tamron lens is the current champ of ultra-wide range (the Canon 10-22mm comes in second). Its optical performance is very good: nice and sharp at 10mm, except in the extreme corners and good tolerance to CA (again, except in the corners). Distortion is a little high — fairly typical for wide-angle lenses — and corner shading is a bit high, as well. Both of these can be solved in post-processing, though.

With a price point lower than its existing ultrawide 11-18mm, the Tamron 10-24mm is an attractive proposition, offering good performance and exceptional value in the same package.

They’ve also listed two additional alternative ultra-wide angle lenses which are in the same class as the Tamron 10-24mm for comparison purposes:

  1. Tokina 12-24mm f/4 AT-X 124 AF PRO DX II

  2. Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 EX DC HSM
