Tamron SP 11-18 f/4.5-5.6 Di II LD Lens Review

Review Summary
Reader Score: 6.98 (out of 10)
This is not a review. It is simply a quick evaluation of the new Tamron 11-18mm based on a few days of casual shooting. No rigorous testing of the lens has been performed and due to time constraints on the availability of this lens for evaluation, none is currently planned.

This lens, in mounts for Nikon, Minolta and Canon, is Tamron's first ultra-wide lens designed specifically for reduced frame (APS-C sized) sensors. In fact, while it will fit on a full frame film or DSLR, the image circle is insufficient to cover the full field. But, unlike Canon's EFS lenses, such as its 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5, which are limited to S mount bodies such as the Rebel/XT and 20D, the Tamron will fit earlier reduced frame digital bodies such as the 10D, D60 and D30. If you put the lens on a film camera, or a full frame digital camera such as the Canon 1Ds MKII, you will not get a usable image outside of the APS-C sized format area. This lens is designed for current 1.5X and 1.6X digital cameras only.
