ISO 12233 Resolution Chart Crops have been added to the Tamron 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 DI II Lens Review page.
 
The Tamron 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 DI II Lens and I are off to a rocky start. The first copy backfocused at all focal lengths. The second copy backfocused at 24mm. And by backfocusing, I'm talking about the lens focusing behind the subject by an unacceptable amount (not just a tiny distance) on both a 50D and a Rebel T2i. The third purchased-retail lens appears to be focusing accurately.
 
I have added ISO 12233 Chart results from the last two lenses (select the specific lens results to view using the drop-down box) - I was hoping the wide open results from the first-tested lens were an anomaly, but ... they apparently were not. You will not want to use this lens wide open very often.

Roger Cicala (LensRentals.com) is the latest to provide an addition to the Canon EF 70-200mm f/4.0 L USM Lens Mug Review.
 
Roger has discovered a no-additional-cost source for Canon lens mugs:
 
I would add though, that for those who don't want to pay the high prices being asked on eBay, it is not to hard to not only make your own lens mug from existing lenses you have around the house. The do-it-yourself method allows you to make mugs in various sizes - and mugs that can serve in other useful capacities.
 
After some trial and error, I've found it usually is best to drop the lens, sans hood, face down on a concrete floor from about 4 feet. The remaining work takes little time and can be accomplished with some sturdy pliers and a bit of superglue.
 
Roger Cicala's Lens Mug
 
I'm sure Roger's creative method voids the manufacturer's warranty.
