I am sure its optical quality is better than the 70-180mm.

It is a very good lens - light and great value for money. It is not popular because it is for cropped sensor cameras only - meaning you would have to sell it if you switched to a full frame camera. For this reason most Nikon users choose the 60mm and 105mm, which can be used both on DX and FX.

 

Here are three shots taken this year with the 85mm Nikkor:

In Topic: Rectilinear wide angle for Nikon DX

30 August 2016 - 12:16 AM

Like most others here, I have not tested all the options. But I did do back to back tests of the Nikon 10-24mm and 12-24mm and found the 10-24mm to be considerably superior.

 

I have been shooting the Sigma 10-20mm recently, but through necessity rather than choice (it is the only DX rect. wide angle we own). And with the v. big dome it performs well.

Don't forget that wherever you buy the book from you can use it to access these video tutorials, which I prepared to work with the content of the book:

If you log into vimeo, you can download them to watch in the field (even when on a liveaboard without internet).

I am hoping that they will start shipping from Amazon.com in the next few days - can someone with an order let me know when they getting a shipping notification. 

 

I am really sorry for the delay, very frustrating from my side too.
