Tokina 12-24 on Nikon D600
Jan 26, 2013

I'm considering a future move from the D7000 to D600, so I wanted to ask a question about the DX Tokina 12-24 f4 Mark II.

Based on a previous thread, it appears that this DX lens can be used in FX mode from 18mm to 24mm, which is very good news.

Am I right in thinking that using this lens at 18mm on an FX camera like the D600 would then give me the  equivalent field of view of 12 mm on a DX camera?

That being the case, can anybody who's used this lens at 18mm on FX tell me if the images then have the same optical characteristics of 12mm on a DX (i.e. the "stretched corners" wide angle look, similar sharpness, etc.)

Any help would be appreciated.


PS I'm aware that the D600 can be set to DX mode, but I was curious how full FX 24MP images would turn out.
