I've been testing the D700 with my 12-24 and 24 -120 lenses to see how the images compare and how usable the 12-24 would be on the 700. I shot the 12-24 in both FX and DX mode to see a comparison of the quality. They were shot in raw and converted to jpg in capture nx2 with no other or limited editing.

The 12-24 at 18mm in FX mode becomes very usable.

The images can be seen at:

Thanks for sharing. This is a very instructive means for people to figure out how they can plan to use their existing DX-pro glass when considering an upgrade to FX.

I find it interesting that the 12-24mm is effectively limited to 18mm either way: 12*1.5 on DX or 18 on FX: I'd use 18 FX personally. Besides the 18-24 FX range, I also think it's still a relevant lens on FX because you can use a filter and it can be found for a good price compared to a 14-24mm.

Your body/lens combo confirms Nikon's guidelines for that body/lens combo.

BTW, you have 17-55mm mixed in with 24-120mm shots in there in addition to 12-24mm and now I trust many of us - as I - are confused.

Nice Shots - I think??

Yes, it's me. 15 months ago, but it's me.

Thank you Alan,

You've answered a question I had about how D3/D700 DX mode images look.

They're actually pretty good if you compare them with earlier DSLR's.

Warm Regards,
