The Tamron 10-24mm F/3.5-4.5 Di II VC HLD is a new ultra-wide-angle zoom lens for APS-C DSLR cameras. This wide-angle zoom lens has improved optical performance and covers an exceptionally large range. It's ideal for street photography, landscapes, group photos and casual everyday scenes. It includes the VC (Vibration Compensation) system, Moisture-Resistant Construction and Fluorine Coating, plus Tamron’s HLD (High/Low Torque Modulated Drive Motor).
Improved optical performance across the entire zoom range
The optical design of the lens consists of 16 elements in 11 groups. Special lens elements are utilized in an optimum configuration of one LD (Low Dispersion) lens element, one XLD glass element, one molded glass aspherical element, and one hybrid aspherical lens. While curbing an increase in the size of the optical system, the new lens very effectively compensates for a wide variety of aberrations in the entire zoom range, including transverse chromatic aberration, comatic aberration and distortions that tend to become more prominent with a wide-angle lens. Tamron’s highly regarded BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) Coating and the optical design paying close attention to internal reflections in the lens barrel also curb the effects of harmful light rays that tend to occur with a wide-angle lens, achieving excellent resistance against ghosting and flare seen in backlighting situations.
Optimizing the actuator and the control algorithm has made it possible to incorporate the VC, while maintaining the compact design of the previous 10-24mm lens. The VC especially enhances the photographer’s freedom in handheld shooting at dusk or in a dimly lit room, and under other relatively low light conditions, as the mechanism proves particularly effective in the shooting conditions with slower shutter speeds.
Equipped with HLD for outstanding driving power and stability
Tamron’s new HLD (High/Low Torque Modulated Drive Motor) has been developed for use as the AF drive system for this new lens. With its outstanding driving power and stability, the HLD is capable of smoothly controlling the AF mechanism of this new model is actually equipped with large focusing lens elements. When shooting in AF mode, the Full-time Manual Focus override allows you to instantly make fine focusing adjustments manually, without having to switch between modes.
Fluorine Coating and Moisture-Resistant Construction
The front surface of the lens element is coated with a protective fluorine compound that is water- and oil-repellent. The lens surface is easier to wipe clean and is less vulnerable to the damaging effects of dirt, dust, moisture and fingerprints, allowing for much easier maintenance. For greater protection when shooting outdoors, leak-proof seals throughout the lens barrel help protect your equipment.
