Hi there,

I am planing to buy the Nikon 10-24mm lens for some shark and seal pictures. Can anyone pls post some links to pictures taken with this lens? I have problems with finding underwater pictures with the lens.

Thank you!

So how come the Nikon 10-24 is $250 less than the 12-24?

I did some quick back to back tests of the Nikon 12-24mm and Nikon 10-24mm in a Sea and Sea D300 housing behind Sea and Sea's big dome - and preferred the 10-24mm, which performed noticeably better in the setup I was using.

I'd like to do some more rigorous testing at some point - but as I don't own a DX wide angle zoom at the moment - it is not likely to happen that fast.

Adm. Linda FINALLY got her check from DEPP for the flooded 12-24 and got the 10-24. It must work pretty well, she got second in the Advanced (meaning experienced UW photogs) Traditional (only limited digital maniupulation) Wide-Angle category in this weekend's Monterey Shootout. With a couple of macro shots that got a 1st and 2nd, she ended up tied for 5th overall.

If you have a camera that will do pin-feed AF, the Tokina 10-17 MIGHT be a better choice, but for the low-end Nikon DSLR folks that need a motor in the lens, it looks like a real good choice. I have the 10-17 for my D300, so I'll have to see if I can borrow hers and compare. It will be interesting to see how the rectilinear 10-24 compares to the fish-eye 10-17.

It needs a large dome to produce great underwater photos, the 4" domes don't work well with it.

Hi,
I use the 12/24 with the Seacam Wide port with a 35mmm extender, also with a 4x diopter with excellent results.
I think the dome port is 150mm, I also use the Wide port on its own when I use the Tokina 10/17 F/E with very good
results.
Regards,
Andy

Hi Andy,
I used both the 12/24 (when it was still in one piece) and the 10/24 with the Sea&Sea fisheye domeport and the Sea and Sea "extension ring 40". As far as I can judge the results are pretty decent.

Hi there,

I have moved from 12-24 to 10-24 essentially for the reduced minimum focusing distance (allowing smaller domes). I haven't noticed reduction in sharpness, so I would highly recommend the 10-24.
I'm not sure these would be good references, and the pictures are 1600px in length, but you might want to check this gallery of mine:

All WA pictures are done with D7000 + 10-24mm (Hugyfot housing + hugyfot fisheye dome).

I think that it's a surface/underwater thing: the 12-24mm is great for landscapes, but a swine to match with a dome port.

The same thing has been noted at FX: the cheaper 15-35mm zoom is better underwater than lenses that are optically superior on land.
