Panoramics are also available with this machine handy for both landscape and group school photographs.

Tamron 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 Di II VC HLD.
Tamron has launched the 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 Di II VC HLD, a new ultra-wide-angle zoom lens for APS-C DSLR cameras+-.
This new wide-angle zoom lens covers an exceptionally large range in what the company say is the largest focal length range in its class (Among ultra-wide-angle zoom lenses for APS-C DSLR cameras the 35mm equivalent is semi wide angle 16mm to 37mm.
The lens is ideal for street photography, landscapes, group photos and casual everyday scenes. The optional TAP-in Console provides a USB connection to your personal computer, enabling you to easily update your lens’s firmware as well as customize features including fine adjustments to the AF and VC.
It also has Tamron’s most advanced technologies, including the VC (Vibration Compensation) system, Moisture-Resistant Construction and Fluorine Coating, and the first implementation of Tamron’s new HLD (High/Low Torque Modulated Drive Motor).
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 at risk from the likes of dirt, dust, moisture and fingerprints and thus enables much easier maintenance. For greater protection when shooting outdoors, leak-proof seals throughout the lens barrel help protect your gear.
This lens comes in Canon and Nikon mounts only. Retail £580
