Default sony 12-24mm lens? Any first hand experience?

Hi!

I am wondering whether anybody has first hand experience with the Sony 12-24mm lens? Anybody who owned Nikon 12-24mm or used Canon's 11-22mm wide angle lenses and can compare them to Sony's 12-24mm wide angle lens?

Thanks!

I'd expect it's just best to get the one
that fits your camera ...

Honestly, unless you have a really special need, your best bet is to find a suitable lens in a mount compatible with your present camera's system. Although it is possible to adapt foreign mounts in some cases, you might lose features such as autofocus, automatic diaphragm control, or image stabilization. Unless you are willing to work with more than one camera system the foreign lens is very superior to anything available in your native system, or nothing at all is suitable in your present system, tread cautiously when mixing camera systems. Your hybrid approach may work great for you; but if it doesn't, you may be making an expensive mistake.

I think Otto owns almost every possible camera system and lens mount, so I don't think compatibility is an issue.

Then, clearly, Otto should buy the all
the available choices and report back
to the forum.
