Marin's right, AF is no big deal here and obviously I haven't started doing much with the lens cause I haven't posted anything with it here yet.

Two aspects of this lens:
1. Insanely sharp
2. The degree to which Nikon has minimized barrel distortion in this lens has to be seen to be believed.

Well alright, here's one on the first day @15mm, Jpeg sooc 90 degree rotation only:



Now the canting in of the building doors is easily corrected in photoshop using lens coefficients. Nothing has been done to this photograph. I was literally inches from the base of the lamp post, matrix metering to get the sky in. Taken FF on the D3. I'll try and post some interiors. It's expensive, but if you can swing it or rent it, you wont be sorry .

True about using flash with an UWA, but my 430EXII has a built-in wide angle diffuser which is effective to 14mm. It actually does a decent job of widening the flash cone.

With a UWA, I've found that they're so steady (owing to the wide angle) that you can get away with some slow shutter speeds and lower ISOs.

according to my cousin, for a DX body, 12-24 is just as good as 14-24... difference in view angle is 90 degrees for the 14-24 vs 99 degrees for the 12-24. not counting the 14-24 being a stop faster, would there be any other difference? typically a room's corner is 90 degrees. that means the picture if taken from a corner, would not show the left and right walls adjacent to the camera.. if 99 degrees, it may show a bit of it??

any one have experience with real estate photography? generally for apt/condo, rooms arent taht big. limited space. in some cases, the room may not have natural lighting as well or even a light (ext flash diffused a good idea??)

how about the 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5? 109 degree view. +19 more than 14-24, +10 more then 12-24
Anyone will tell you that the 14-24 is the best of the bunch in terms of IQ. I didn't do real estate photography, but I shot indoors plenty with the Canon 10-22 when I had it. I found myself often at 15-20mm even indoors, because at 10-15mm, the perspective distortion is so pronounced that all the straight lines in a building are warped, requiring correction and cropping in post. And the Canon 10-22 is not an f/2.8 lens (f/3.5-4.5), but wide angles are so steady that I found it not to be a significant problem.

Since it's for a crop sensor, you might consider something as wide as possible nonetheless (like the Tokina 11-16), since at ultra wide angles on a crop, a few degrees is a big difference (the difference between 10 and 15mm was huge on my 40D/7D).

M42 mount? I'd like to see sample shots from these old lenses you're packing.

That's one of the best looking lenses i've ever seen. Looking forward to some sample shots.

the name is actually Carl Zeiss Olympic 180/2.8. the silver one i believe isnt multicoated so you might have to watch out for flares. but it is a great lens, cant wait to see some samples.

btw how much you pay for it? ive been playing with the idea of a longer portrait lens.

i dont think 14mm aps-c is considered UWA.
but that reminds me, if you stick on a "GF light sphere" you might be able to get coverage to 10mm aps-c. might be a option to pick up a lightsphere or knock off lightsphere.

Iandroo, I am by no means experienced in real estate photography, but I'd suggest going as wide as you can. Although the 14-24 is an amazing lens optically, it's not really that wide on cropped format. I got the Sigma 10-20mm for a bargain price at my local camera shop, so here's a shot just to give you an idea of what 10mm is like inside on the DX format:

Do you mean Quantaray? They were a third-party maker of lower-end lenses. Nothing special about them.
