So It was brought to my attention that this lens was not on this vast list. So here goes!
So if you have more with this lens, post them up!
Check this "Set" in my Flickr account to see more Tamron 10-24 images.

Very nice shots. The basketball pic is indeed very nice. I just picked up the same lens this evening. I can't wait until tomorrow morning to try it out.

Here is a shot I took in kind of a macro perspective using this lens. Despite the critics, I find this sub $500.00 lens quite sharp especially at f8-11.

Here is another one where the image is of a rock wall that is around 50 feet. I am pleased with the depth of field.

Thanks for the kind words guys. Yeah, that Bball image was fun to shoot. I was mesing around with all sorts of different focal lengths that night. The 10-24 SP supplied a few different looks that I had not yet shot. Up till that point I had only used either a Canon 50f1.8 or f1.4 or my 70-200 f4L. When I busted out the UWA new kinds of shots became available to me. There is very little room under the basket/in the paint area in a Middle School gym, so the the 10-24 lent itself nicely to that kind of image. I also tried to use my Canon 28mm f2.8 and go som nice shots there too.
Since I posted this thread I have also got a Canon 24-70 f2.8L that I have used for basketball. Now that's the shiz-nit lens for Bball. Wide, long and fast! The AF motor in the Tamron 10-24 just isn't fast enough to keep up with these kids so I kept my shot selection to the slower types of things, foul shots and in bound passes near me.
I love my lens, though I haven't used it much lately. That darn 24-70L is always on my body!
Maybe I'll have to have a day where I only shoot the 10-24 and see what I come up with.

I enjoyed your pics, they have inspired me to use my Tamron 10-24 more. I especially like the Truck Cab photo. The composition and light is just right.
