While this wide-angle lens is optimized for full-frame digital SLR cameras, APS-C cameras can benefit as well. The focal length will effectively increase by a factor of 1.5X on most APS-C cameras (1.6X on Canon's APS-C models), so this 12-24mm lens will have a 18-36mm equivalent length on many non-full-frame cameras. With different mountings to choose from, this lens has the versatility to find a home in almost any serious photographer's lens collection.
Carefully machined low-dispersion and FLD glass optical elements and proprietary coatings yield a lens that is sharp, clear, and free of artifacts like color fringing, ghosting, flaring, and distortion. The lens has a non-detachable petal-shaped lens hood.
