Well, I would still like to hear about that lens. It was just too expensive for me. I got a used lens. I would really be interested in seeing some photos with it; particularly, landscapes at about 17mm.

I bought mine used also. I will look and find a photo that was taken with the lens. I took some landscape photos with it when I went to Arizona couple of weeks ago. Will post tomorrow.

I took over 1400 photos with the lens and I shot at 10mm or 20mm for most of the photos. Here are two that I came across quickly. I have not finished sorting through all my photos as of today. May be another few weeks. This is the Route 66 museum shot at 16mm 16mm-car.jpg This is the Grand Canyon shot at 20mm 20mm.jpg I really enjoyed shooting with the wide angle. Ended up using it more than any other lens I took with me. It is light weight. It allows you to get pretty close to your subject and still focus. Not a macro replacement though. I also took some photos indoors with it. Had to up the ISO to 1600 but hey I use a D7K. And we all know how well it handles high iso don't we.... :D

I have a copy of that lens (12-24 AT-X) and you'll love it. It's a very sharp lens on my D90. Definitely in my top 2-3 lenses.
