12-24mm FOV test
Jun 27, 2003

I received yesterday the new 12-24 DX lens, and compared it today to my other WA lenses. Here's a comparison picture, made of four images - the first on the left is from the Nikkor 16mm/F:2.8 fisheye, erected by Panotools. The second to it's right is from the Sigma 15-30@ 15mm, then further to the right is the image from the 14mm/f:2.8, and at the right edge, the image from the 12-24 @ 12mm. I didn't run a full resolution test yet, but at first glance the lens has less CA and barreling than I expected from such a WA zoom. I mounted it on my old F70, and found that at least as seen in the viewfinder, at 12mm there's severe vignetting, as expected, but from 15-16mm onwards, vignetting is gone, quite a surprise.
