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 at the center-stabilizer-optical quality of the absolute level (absent aberrations, distortion, coma and vignetting well controlled-price

Cons: Edge sharpness-Flare-Build quality

Opinion: Excellent lens, definitely the one I most loved about Nikon attack (proven on D750). Build quality: 8/10 Although well built for materials and couplings and solid, it has a touch something that puts it a step below the corresponding zoom of the most emblazoned brands (Sony, Nikon, Canon, we do not speak Zeiss). Weight and size for me have never been a problem, I knew what I was buying and that on the wide angle the quality you pay. As well as the use of slab filters for me is a merit: it is a gesture for me beautiful to assemble the holder and work with the filters... Sure they were 100mm to save something would be better, but you can't have it all... AUTOFOCUS (10/10) As far as it can serve on a super wide angle, excellent, practically perfect for reliability, accuracy and speed. I only had some problems with manual focus, especially at night, but I think it is to be attributed to the photographer more than the lens. Image quality (9/10) Very comfortable focal Range that made me often carry it back as the sole goal. VR that helps to compensate the weight in the freehand shots. Excellent sharpness already from the whole opening in the center. My specimen lost a bit ' to the edges as to sharpness and resolution, but only appreciable in prints really extra large. Nothing dramatic, but still present. I could not compare it seriously with other lenses of other brands, but from what little I could see other models even more noble if they pass worse. It suffers from flare, but more than a defect is a feature of super wide lenses, and apparently suffers less than colleagues from other brands. PRICE (10/10) I think there is no better in circulation as a value for money. Since the G2 (optically and mechanically identical) came out this is in the used market at very advantageous prices, if you look for a lens with these features I think it is a "Best Buy"

Pros: Sharpness and great value for money.

Cons: I don't feel like giving...

Opinion: If you want a wide angle zoom with an aperture and a sharpness of the genre you can not fall into the dimensions and the weight; I fell in love with this lens before seeing the Iscatti and then using it almost as the only lens on a Full Frame. I think it has very little to envy as a surrender to large wide-angle mothers houses: sharp on almost the entire image, already good at full aperture, given away simply to change the system... Large and durable, an excellent travel companion: The biggest flaw is the need for a special filter holder and as a result of a set of dedicated filters that is fine until you only usan those, but becomes a footprint if you also use other lenses...
