    I saw a comparison and it put the 12-24 to absolute SHAME. It looked like shit side by side

    My friend's mom works for Canada Immigration, and she works in India now full time. He works there for 4 months in the summer between school with her. So I figured 'how often do i have a free place to stay, in India?' and decided to go over there for a month. I'll stay with him for 2 weeks, spend 1 week scuba diving in the Andamans Islands, and 1 week going around wherever. The primary goal there is photography :coolugh:

    Coming back Aug 15, so only 1 month :sad2:

    BTW - ken rockwell isn't the most reliable source for information

    Bhphoto is getting a few every week now and is accepting orders. From what I understand full shipments begin in June.

    definitely. I love the 12-24 but if this badboy is better, I may consider upgrading.

    Thats a fisheye. The 11-16 and 12-24 are aspherical.
