Nikon 12-24 how good is it
May 28, 2006

Hi , I am considering a D200 (am currently Canon FF shooter)... On the Canon , I am using a 16-35/2.8L for ultrawide and I am happy with it (no light fall of to speak of, contrasty somewhat, usable @ f2.8 and really sharp by f8, limited CA and almost impossible to get to flare).

I guess the equivalent lens to get for the D200 would be the Nikon 12-24 DX although I hear good things about the Tokina 12-24 too. I will miss the last 2 mm's (comparing to 35mm equivalent) but then it would be Sigma 10-22 wouldnt it ?

So one question I have is , how does this 12-24 things compare on the D200 (or any DX cam) with e.g. the Nikon 17-35 on a 35mm film camera ?

Also, not considering price , does any third party lens in this range do better than the Nikon 12-24 ? Lastly, any primes in the 10 - 14mm range that can be recommended ?

All help appreciated
