DX only - a high price for a DX shooter, can't be used on full frame cameras if they upgrade

The Nikon AF-S DX Zoom-NIKKOR 12-24mm f/4G IF-ED is an ultra-wide-angle lens designed for use with Nikon DX-format cameras. Functionally this is very similar to the Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5G ED, the main differences being that this lens has a slower f/4 maximum and a more narrow focal length of 12-24mm. While this does mean that the wide angle shots are slightly more narrow, a 99 degree angle-of-view is still possible. This design has been engineered to offer an optimized image quality from center-to-edge-to-corner on the image. 2 Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements are used in conjunction with 3 aspherical lens elements to minimize shape and color distortion. The Internal Focusing (IF) system is powered by a Silent Wave Motor (SWM), allowing smooth and fast focusing.
