Pros: 10 is wide, there is a huge different than 12. Sharp.

I think this is one of the best ultra-wide zoom ever for Nikon. Thank Sigma.

Pros: VR is great, Sharpness is enough, Well Built, Easy to Use, Usefull M/A switch which you can feel old fashion style.
Cons:
72mm filter size.

I am bought at second hand and I liked it. Specially I have tried 18-200 VRII and this one. I think that 24-120 has sharpen images than the newest VR prime zoom. This lens is made in japan also and other one is made in thailland. Also you can see the scientific result of those two lense from www.photozone.de and compare yourself. I liked it and recommed to everybody. I think 18-200 is not so usefull as after some point you need some 70-200 or 100-300 lens for better results. But 24-120 is very balanced lens. It is everyday use lens. It has 72mm bayonet which is maybe only weak point to expand extra dollar for some filters. But on the other hand these days this lens is getting cheaper after the 18-200 which is out of stock and selling at 800$. This is half of this price and VR is working great. At 200mm you can use 3 steps down with hand. Take consider that before buy prime zoom.

Pros: Very Sharp and get max from your camera
Cons:
Getting oriented to her depth of field needs so much time. Not easy to use the maximum benefits.

This is my first lense for macro world. Usually I am using it with manual focusing. You can use it also for your everyday lense but be carefull about the depth of field. After several shooting try you can used to be how the maximum benefits/potentials that this lense has.
