Well no. If you want to shoot with the sun in the actual frame with any of the bulbous WA jobs, you're bascially screwed. The 10-24 does it with no problem at all while maintaining excellent contrast. Pretty annoying that FX has no answer for this.

The 12-24 is even better... especially in FX and can be great at D800's 1.2x crop from 14mm (16.8mm FF equivalent). The best anti-flare lens in the world! (little difference in flare than this one though).


The 12-24 is an older design and is definitely more prone to flare (arcs and overall veiling) and has much worse corners than the 10-24 at the sweet spot, f5.6.  It's probably about number five for corner sharpness after the Sigmas, the Tokina 11-16 and the Nikon 10-24. I do require pretty sharp corners.

The 10-24 is also good and sharp at 17mm in 1.2 crop, as you said. I'm tempted to get another copy and slap it on a D3200 for those times when the 14-24 craps out on the 800e :^)
