    I only bought it over the Nikon version because it was half the price.

    If I was more baller I would get the Nikon 12-24. :o

    I got this because I couldnt get the ef-s 10-20 canon. 10d :o It feels better built than the canon though. But I have not real grounds for this :rofl:

    This is a very solid lens. Thing could take a bullet.

    its a nice sharp lens, but a little too contrasty compared to canon glass. flaring is also a common issue too. the thing is built really well.

    I have it on my Nikon.

    Very wide lens. Great for indoors. But as a walking around lens not as good because it just doesn't zoom in enough.

    Very very sturdy and has that brick wrapped in rubber feel. Solid.

    From the reviews I have seen online they say it is 50% the cost of the nikon version and 90% percent the same quality maybe even more. Get it.
