Ultra wide to wide view.
Like the lens for it's wide zoom, and F/4 opening, but images are soft and you have to sharpin them alot. Sent the lens to nikon for that problem, but repair said lens was fine.

Wonderful Lens for a Cropped Sensor Camera
This is my go to lens for landscape photography. It is fast, produces wonderful color and is very sharp. I use it on a Nikon D300 body and it gives me a very wide view at 12mm and a great standard wide view at 24mm.

Excellent Super Wide Zoom
The 12-24 f4 zoom is an excellent super wide zoom. Mine has survived 700+ degree fire rooms as well as high humidity while shooting in a fire training building. I can't say enough for how well this lens has held up under the harshest conditions imaginable. I use this on my D200 rather than my D300 in case the whole package goes up in flames. I'm sure the lens would survive though I don't believe the D200 would.

Finally a wide zoom
I loved the old 20-35mm for film cameras. When I switched to digital I was at a loss for there were not any wide lens! 20mm is a third of my vision, and there wasn't anything. Soon after my switch the 12-24mm came out to supply this need. Granted it is an f4, but the competition lens were variable aperture of f4-5.6, horrible. This lens is sharp. Granted there are now other choices, but this range works wonderful for me!
