Pros: Quality, Low Distortion, VC, 2.8, Sharpness at 2.8....

Cons: Wight, none....

Opinion: What for a Monster !!! The Tamron 15-30 is my First Lens from Tamron, and i was very suspicious bevor buying. Read and hera a lot of AF Problems, unsharp Images u.s.w But......... This Lens hit my 14-24 Nikon, (Sharpness at the Corners). For me the best WA i ever had.. (on my Nikon D750). The building and haptic is Top. Distortion and Vignetteing are less, and quickly corrected by Adobe. Image Quality is Phantastic. The VC is perfect for me and my Style (LowLight, People,Concerts). For the Price im very, very Happy !!!! Greets JazzSam

Pros: Fantastic image quality and vc I prefer it to the nikon 14-24 just seems edge sharpness wins here .Of cource price is a real winner to be cheaper and less is good but to be cheaper and kick ass is sensational...

Cons: Big and heavy but on the Nikon d810 it's a soooooo fantastic.

Opinion: I had the Samyang 14f2.8 umc and other wa lenses but this is just so much quality in one .But to be honest it's good to see that you dont have to spend hundreds or thousands to achieve top notch .Nikon and Canon need to pretend they are not so big and stop walking on people like they were little ants otherwise the little ants will eat at their feet and stop when there is no ass left .Really these companys are screwing people for after sale services when they start to race with each other,s products they produce crappy cameras and sensors ie d600 oily d800e off alighment sensors sb900 over heat cmon Nikon you charge enough to do a better service .Get rid of the spin doctors and hire some serious design engineers.

Pros: Built like a tank, nice contrast, precise autofocus, stabilizator and nice handling.

Cons: Risk to loose lens cap after some time when internal material will become thinner because of friction. Bulbous front element requires safe use and avoiding dropping - plastic fantastic :) No cheap filter system, at least for now. Weight is not a problem - I often have Canon 5D II + Sigma 70-200 F2.8 (1.4 kg) on my neck for all day...

Opinion: After long use of two fixes ( Samyang 14 F2.8 and Zeiss 35 F2.0 ) I am feeling like i get more freedom :) Nice contrast and sharpness, VC allows exposure 1/6 sec on 15 mm from hand. Samy 14 goes for temporary rest and will go to another enthusiast soon. Tamy does not have distracting corner deformation as Samyang though field of view is smaller. For now I am in love with this big beast :)

Pros: Sharpness, stabilizer.

Cons: None apart from the fact of the cap on the hood that does not disassemble, tropicalization absent, it is not possible to mount filters.

Opinion: Having a childhood friend who owns a photography shop, I have the opportunity to try many lenses, the lens in question I tried on Canon 6D and I can only speak well of this glass. The weight....... certainly you can not have the "full barrel and the drunken wife", if I have to be honest I would have preferred 5 mm more maybe sacrificing the 15 mm, if Tamron had built a lens equal to this, with a constant 16-35 excursion f / 2.8 I would have preferred it. The only defect that in my opinion (if we want to call it a defect) is the rubber cap that covers the hood that remains fixed. Another flaw that is not tropicalized. The quality/price ratio is great.

Pros: Stabilization, sharpness, contrast

Cons: Flare, weight, size, inability to screw filters

Opinion: Got and resold. The lens itself is not bad bad but you have to get used to its weight. If you plan to always use it on a tripod it is great but if you have to take it on the road it starts to weigh as much as two average lenses, 1.1kg are many, both if you put them on a machine with good grip like a Canon 5D and on smaller machines but with less grip like an R6. The stabilization and sharpness are good, minus the behavior with light sources such as the Sun in the frame. It is impossible to mount screw filters which makes plate filters necessary, inconvenient and uneconomical for me. Resold for the Canon 16-35 f/4 L IS as sharper, lighter, compact in the backpack, similar stabilizer and possibility of mounting 77mm filters
