    The ultimate budget ultrawide, I'd say. I paid $40 for it and it's just superb. If I didn't (sheepishly) love the look my the red ring on my Canon FD 20-35L, I'd be putting it up for sale immediately. The Tamron is simply a superior lens. And considering it's age, I'm perfectly happy with it.

    Looks good. Range is nice as a walk out lens also. Which mount is it?

    ^^Agree on both statements - Results look very good and not a slow lens either ;)

    This copy is a Nikon mount. If I had been thinking, I'd have gotten a Canon or Minolta though and then I'd be able to use an adapter with EXIF data.
