It is specif­i­cally de­signed for full-frame Sony mir­ror­less bod­ies, and the flow of light is de­vised based on the unique­ness of the dis­tance from glass to sen­sor in mir­ror­less cam­eras to cre­ate op­ti­mal per­for­mance.

An ul­tra-wide-an­gle zoom lens that is ca­pa­ble of cap­tur­ing de­tailed land­scapes through to ca­sual snap­shots at a great res­o­lu­tion can be found in the new Tam­ron 10–24mm f/3.5–4.5 Di II VC HLD lens. Merg­ing great crafts­man­ship with in­tu­itive de­sign, the lens fea­tures an outer cas­ing that hugs the con­tours of the lens, and a deftly worked lu­mi­nous gold brand ring. Its con­struc­tion pro­duces a qual­ity lens ready to tackle what­ever sit­u­a­tion you throw at it. Even de­tails like the shape of the switch box, dis­tant-scale win­dow, and the pre­ci­sion and sta­bil­ity of the metal­lic mount re­veal a com­mit­ment to functionality, as well as de­sign. The re­sult is a next-gen­er­a­tion lens that’s easy to use, yet loaded with cut­ting-edge tech­nol­ogy.
