12-24 = Run and Gun.....

May 16, 2006
I'm getting close to buying a D7100 to use with my D7000 for a A and B camera setup. Today for the first time I really tested my off tripod ability and found that the 12-24 using hyper focal distance allowed me to have a great "run and gun" with various setups and most surprisingly it works pretty good freehand.

The 12-24 is one of my favorite DX lenses, and while I'm considering a 16-85/70-300 video travel kit with the D7100/7000 for the VR, the 12-24 is an amazing video lens. In fact I think I can live without the 16-85mm in a video 2 lens travel kit because of it.

If you've got one try it, I think you will pleasantly surprised at how good this lens is (so far Mercalli Easy has fixed any bad segments really well).
