Compability, auto focus and focal length
The lens is available for both Canon and Nikon cameras, but there are two different versions of this lens (one for each brand and mount) so it is important that you ask for and choose the right version when bying the lens.
This lens is designed and meant for Canon and Nikon cameras with a smaller sensor (often referred to as 'APS-C') which means that the lens does not fit all camera models. By clicking on the link below you can make sure that the lens works with your camera model and you should do an additional check with your local dealer as well, before you buy the lens just to be sure.
The ability to use auto focus is available for all cameras.
The lens has a focal length of 10-24 mm. Since the lens is designed to be used on a camera with smaller sensor ('APS-C') the focal length will be equivalent to 16-38 mm if you have a Canon camera or 15-36 mm if you have a Niko camera.

Lens brightness and image stabilizer
The lens brightness and aperture value is f/3,5-4,5.
This lens is not considered to have a good aperture value and brightness. It is something to consider before you purchase the lens. To compensate for this you might, while photographing in less favorable light conditions, be forced to either use higher ISO settings (which generates more noise in the image), slower shutter speeds (which may give some motion blur) or flash lightning. Read more at the link below what lens brightness means to you as a photographer.
One thing to consider is that the lens has a variable brightness, which means that depending on how much you are zooming the lens will have a different maximum aperture value. At 10 mm the lens brightness is f/3,5 and at 24 mm the brightness is f/4,5. Through the link below you can read more about what this could mean for you as a photographer.
The lens lacks image stabilization, which otherwise os good for avoiding the blur that can occur when using slow shutter speeds.

Filter and Lens Hood
The lens has a traditional filter thread on the front and its measuring 77 mm which also the filter you will use must have. If you use for example an UV filter can be a cheap insurance against scratches and dust.
If you buy this lens it will come with a lens hood, whose model name is "AB001".

Text from Tamron:"The Tamron SP designation is reserved for lenses developed with special emphasis on extraordinary photographic performance. Engineers are free to innovate in an uncommon atmosphere where optical performance comes before price, resulting in lenses that satisfy the demands of discerning photographers.

Tamron was first to offer the 10-24mm ultra wide-angle 2.4X zoom perspective for digital SLRs, successfully resolving numerous optical engineering challenges. Rendering picture angles approximating 16 to 37mm in the 35mm (film) or full-frame DSLR formats, landscapes, streetscapes, architecture and confining interiors come to life beautifully. Images exhibit negligible distortion in normal use, but—if the photographer chooses—spectacular effects can be introduced by disregarding the camera´s relationship to level.

Ultimate photo fun and fantastic perspectives are inevitable with this lens. This ultra wide-angle lens builds on the concept of the renowned Tamron 11-18mm F4.5-5.6. It belongs to the Super performance ( SP) class of Tamron lenses distinguished by ultra high optical and mechanical quality.

It has a very wide angle of view, equivalent to 16-37mm when converted to full format. The MFD of 24cm allows you to get close to your subject, for absolute control and creativity. Tamron’s Di-technology results in high resolution coupled with the best possible correction of the most common aberrations. Particular emphasis is placed on the BBAR coating, which is also put on cemented surfaces (Internal Surface Coating) for sharp and brilliant images. Other materials such as LD ( Low Dispersion) glass and aspherical elements also help to correct aberrations. Capture better images with this impressive masterpiece of optical engineering.

Please note that Di II lenses are made for the exclusive use on digital SLR cameras with image sensors smaller than 24mm x 16mm. Di II lenses cannot be used together with a full format or 35mm SLR camera, as their image sensors are not able to cover the entire area of full format resulting in dark corners of the (i.e. vignetting becomes noticeable)."
