Yeah, the real nice thing is that they tested the lens with a FF and
high resolution body - something we Nikonians still have to wait for
On another note...
I finally got my D80 back from Nikon service (after 4 weeks
) and they had to adjust the aperture lever, renewed the CPU "contacfpc" (?), adjusted the exposure system, updated the firmware, remapped dead pixels and adjusted the optical system. All at no cost
So the lens was ok, but the body was not.
What I expected after experiencing the exposure misbehaviour on too many lenses...
I also made some test-shots with the 14-24mm on my brand spanking new D300 and everything seems a-ok
So apart from the weight...
..ah yes, and the price...
....ok, plus the bulk...
......and well apart from the missing filter-thread...
now there is nothing
that should hold you back from getting this ultimate ultra-wide zoom
