Hello. Just got myself a second hand Nikkor 12-24mm F4G ED DX so it was time to test it. So I was walking in the city looking for some places to test the new lens.

All photos are done with a Nikon D7000 with Nikkor 12-24mm F4G ED DX and B+W F-pro 77 010UV filter. I think the kens is pretty sharp. I think we can speak about prime lens quality across the entire focal range.

Post processing was done with CaptureNX2. Sharpening filters in software hardly make it any sharper and only gives oversharpening problems. Maybe put highpass filter on 1 but beyond that it give problems. This lens is amazing.


I am not used to city photography yet so I hope the compositions are oke.
I think it worked out pretty good myself.

Nice shots, the first seems a bit crooked judging by the slanted street and the slanted tabled from the bistro to the right, but the street itself could just be on a bit of an angle. Anyways, excellent pictures, the 12-24 is definitely on my list of "possible upcoming lenses", but it may be difficult to track one down new.

It's not crooked because of the lens but because it is a street a couple of centuries old and the houses too.

Here in Holland they still have nikkor 12-24mm on stock at some stores.
But I dont invest around 1000 euros for "new" DX glass. If its is FX glass it is a different story because you can keep that forever also when the FX bodies become more affodable in a couple of years time.
