I really expected to use this lens only very very rarely, but I'm probably using it more than that...maybe up to 1-2%
on some assignments. It works great on landscapes, and even portraits. On my D2X it functions
much like a fixed focus lens.
It seems that everything from a few inches to infinity is in focus. Defished
images retain their sharpness, but at a cost to image
area covered. By the time you square it up it is more
like 14mm. However, since the 12-24 is softest at the wide end (12-14 range)
- I sometimes choose the
fisheye over the 12-24 because I know the image quality will be better....particularly if shooting wide
I really love this little gem. Image
quality is very good to excellent, and build quality is very good.
