Hi all,

I am thinking of buying this lens and was wondering if anyone else is or has used this lens for AP work?
I will be using it on a Nikon D80.

Thanks for any input.

Funny, I just spent an hour looking at reviews on the net for that lens.

For half the price of comparable lens, it scores very highly in all respects. I am thinking of getting one soon for myself as the extra few millimeters will make a big difference for the close in shots with my mast.

Heavy though at over 20 ounces...

Yea, it looks like a nice lens for the price, but I am wondering how useful a 12-24mm lens is for AP.

Here is Ken Rockwell's side by side comparison, very long but great review of 4 wide angle zoom lens

Cheers!

I use this lens alongside a Nikon 70-200VR/2.8 and 17-55DX/2.8 in my wedding photography business and love it. I've used both it and the nikon and can't really see any difference (other then saving alot of money). Obviously weight is a different problem with AP then wedding photos

Even Mr. Nikon himself (Ken Rockwell) gives it a pretty good review.

I haven't heard any complaints yet.
