Nikon 12-24 f/4 Review

“An essential lens for your Nikon DSLR”

nikon nikkor 12-24

I bought this lens for my D70 in 2004. At the time this was the only wide-angle lens for Nikon’s DSLR, so I could not evaluate it against the offerings from Tokina, Sigma, or Tamron. However, just because it is more expensive than other brands does not mean it is undeserving of a high rating. The photographic quality is excellent and the build quality is good (even though it’s all plastic save the mount). While some feel that F/4 is a bit slow, it’s really not an issue with DSLRs at all with high ISO availabilities. Amazingly, this has become my “everyday” lens. You just can’t fake wide angle views.

Given that there are other choices of lens in this focal length now, you should definitely compare before deciding. However if focus override (a feature of “AF-s”) is critical to you, this is your lens.
