Thom's Mini Review: Good news: nice central sharpness, decent edge sharpness, even wide open. Bad news: for its range and price point, none, really. Some people might dislike the lower build quality compared to the 12-24mm. Vignetting is medium at 10mm (1 stop in corner) and doesn't improve as much as you might think it should when stopping down. Overall: I tried this against both the new Sigma 10-24mm and the Tokina 11-16mm, and I like the Nikkor better by a teeny bit. The only problem with that assessment is that it seems there appears to be significant sample variation amongst all three brands in the wide-angle zooms. Trust, but verify.
