The Tamron 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 Di II VC HLD Lens is designed for Non-Full Frame-format DSLRs, where it provides a
16-38.4mm (Canon EF-S) or 15-36mm (Nikon DX) equivalent focal length range. Benefitting the versatile
range of perspectives is an advanced optical design that includes a pair
of low dispersion elements and two aspherical elements to suppress both
chromatic and spherical aberrations for a high degree of clarity,
sharpness, and color fidelity. A BBAR coating is also featured to reduce
surface reflections, flare, and ghosting for improved contrast when
working in strong lighting conditions.
In addition to the lens's
optical merits, it also sports a four stop-effective Vibration
Compensation (VC) system to minimize the appearance of camera shake when
shooting handheld. Also, an HLD autofocus motor is featured, and
provides noticeably smooth, quiet, and quick focusing performance to
suit both video and stills applications. The lens is also characterized
by a moisture-resistant physical construction, and it has a fluorine
coating on the front element to guard against dust, dirt, and smudging.
