Nikon 12-24mm f/4G ED-IF AF-S DX

2144NAS_180
Review Date: Mar 5, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Excellent ultrawide.
Cons:
DX, F4 instead of F2.8, soft focus when filter attached, soft in the corners

I use this lens for landscape and for interiors. Good DOF and when used for HDR, nothing can touch it.

It is one of the few ultrawide lens that can have a filter attached, however, I found that even with a Nikon filter attached, there is a noticeable softness in focus and CA shows up around light sources. A c.pol. makes it worse than the UV filter. No problems with a sharp focus or CA when I use it without a filter.

I really hope that Nikon comes out with a f2.8 non-DX version.
