    I just bought a new Tamron 10-24mm for my Nikon D90 as I had come up with an interior assignment. The lens worked beautifully but there's a major problem.

    The lens cannot at all focus at infinity at 10mm, it likes infinity if I go to 15mm. In manual mode I can click a picture which is out of focus.

    I have sent the lens back to the shop from where I purchased it and now I am waiting; fingers crossed, period.

    Does anybody have experienced such a problem? I came across similar problems on a Pentax forum.

    i guess that it should focus, but it probably wouldnt make that much diffence, it would be probably sharp anyway at 10 mm if focused part way in a scene. im not sure i ever have focused on infinity with my nikkor 12-24

    At 10mm, focus it at 1m at f11 & you'll be in focus from the end of your nose to Xmas! Wink
