From ePhotozine verdict :

This 15-30mm lens from Tamron offers excellent optical performance for a reasonable price. Vibration Compensation is an added bonus, especially if your photography tends to require shooting at slow shutter speeds handheld.

The lens sports robust build quality and weather sealing, allowing it to be used in a wide range of conditions. On a body of a similar size to the EOS 5D MkIII used for testing, the lens handles very well, although those wishing to use it on a more compact SLR body may wish to get their hands on the lens before stumping up the cash for one.

As far as ultra-wide lenses go, this lens is up there with the better examples, thanks to the high levels of sharpness it delivers, low CA and excellent build and handling.

The Tamron SP 15-30mm f/2.8 DI VC USD lens is available in Nikon, Canon and Sony mounts.
