12-24mm DX now in my lens table

For all you panorama shooters, I've added the entrance pupil measurements for the 12-24mm DX (for 7 different focal lengths) to my lens measurement table.

http://www.swissarmyfork.com/photo_resources.html

The "entrance pupil" is the point you rotate about when shooting panoramas. It's often referred to as the "nodal point". (I've also measured the "real" nodal points, as well as the exit pupil. It's all in the table).

It's a "pano friendly" lens, the entrance pupil is within a couple of mm of the line engraved right before the zoom collar, for all focal lengths. If you're doing your panoramas with the "PhiloPod" plumb bob method, just tie your strign around that line, and you're good to go.

Also added a golden oldie, the measurements for the 105mm f4.0 Nikkor-P bellows lens.

And, just for grins, the rare and obscure Leica 24mm Macro-Summar.
