    Cons: - The focus ring could be smoother (this was improved considerably in the 12-24 version II and 12-28) - auto-focus is noisy (the new versions 12-24 II and 12-28 have build in motor but are equally noisy) - don't have build in focus motor

    Pros: + good build quality (exception of the focus ring that could be better) + AF works perfectly in D7xxx bodies, including in live view + well balanced in D7xxx bodies + from all version this one has the best focus ring (the body has a small diameter and the focus ring stands out making it easier to grab)

    Summary: The lens is fairly good and considerably cheap compared with the all the competition. Its one of the cheapest (if not the cheapest) ultra-wide angle lens for DX at the moment. The main disadvantage is that this lens will only auto-focus in the D7xxx bodies.

    Cons: Not thrilled with M/A shifting but can live with it. Not weather sealed. Auto focus is a little noisy.

    Pros: Focusing ring and zoom rings are both very smooth. Solid Build, constant fstop, tack sharp and a price that you really cannot beat for such a lens of that class. Focusing is very quick in most situations both indoors and out.

    Summary: You really cannot find such a well built lens like this for the price. No one can go wrong for buying such a wonderful piece of glass like that for the price. This is a well built lens for the class. Nothing comes close in my opinion in DX format for this price and in that class. This is my very first non-Nikon piece of glass and I am pretty impressed and astounded at the results of my photos so far. It is pretty darn close to being just as good as my other Nikkors, when it come to sharpness.

    Cons: It's a DX lens. Sometimes auto-focus is a bit slow and inaccurate with this lens.

    Pros: Excellent color and very good Ultra Wide performance for the money.

    Summary: I bought this to use with my D70 in 2005 before I took a trip to Europe. It was an excellent performer on the trip and has been the lens that I used to create some of my best work prior to my making the leap to FX. Since then, I haven't used the lens that often, though it is still a good performer.

    Cons: - Very visible and disturbing CA. - Focus motor noisy and sometimes indecisive.

    Pros: - Sharp, especially stopped down a bit. - Tough and dependable. - Great colors.

    Summary: This is a great UWA for digital. I had it for a few months, then decided that I need something more moderate and futureproof (thus the acquisition of a 17-35L that served me well). But if the UWA is your thing, this is the lens to go. Not sure how the new Sigma 10-20/3.5 compares though.
