I also have a Sigma 17-70, and a Nikon 60 micro for other situations. I generally use 2 strobes

to get sharp corners. This lens is a DX lens, so you can't use it on a FX camera in FX mode but she works very good on a DX camera
and this lens is very useful for topside shooting as well as she don't distort the picture.
Nikon D800 + Sigma 15mm + Nikon 105mm Micro VR + Hugyfot Housing + 3 Inon Z-240 strobes + 2x2 8'' ULCS arms - Panasonic LX100 + Nauticam Housing + SubSea +10 diopter
Nikon D90 + Ikelite housing + Ikelite DS125 strobe (for sale) - Nikon D7000 + Hugyfot housing (for sale)
Canon G1X + Canon OEM housing (sold) - Canon G12 + Patima aluminium housing (for sale) - - Fuji E900 + Ikelite housing (for sale)

i use the Nikon12/24 W/A lens with wide dome port which approx 140mm , with a 35mm extender & a +4 diopter.
i get very sharp corners. i also have 10/17Fe & 10.5Fe both very good I would say the 10.5 Nikon is slightly sharper.
i think all lens have their place when to use them.

I very much apreciate everyones input. It's really helped me sort through some of this. I've had some good results with my 10.5, but sounds like there won't be a sacrafice with the 10-17. That's reassureing.

You will sacrifice a little optical quality for flexibility in use, but almost no-one seems to regret this.

is a better choice when compared to the 10-17mm f/3.5-4.5 AT-X 107 AF DX
for my present body as well as a future upgrade?
