I have a KODAK PROFESSIONAL DCS PRO SLR/n and i would wantbuy a wide zoom.

I have seen the nikon AF-S DX 12-24mm f/4 G IF-ED but the nikon's web site asserts that: "World's first lens with a smaller image circle optimized for the sensor format of Nikon Digital SLRs such as the D100, D1X, D1H and D1. "

So, tihs lens is good for my camera? or is good only camera that has a smaller sensor?

Have you a idea for another good wide zoom?

AllDX lenses would produce major vigneting on a full frame DSLR.

Remember that the 12-24mm is equivalent to 18-36mm in 35mm convention, but it is still a 12-24 on your camera.

A good alternative would be the AF-S Zoom-Nikkor 17-35mm f/2.8D ED-IF.

I second the 17-35 AF-S Nikkor as that is what I use for both my film and digital SLR's. But if you really want wide, Sigma has a 12-24mm lens that is designed for full frame image circles (works for both film, ff sensors and aps sized sensors). It doesn't have a constant aperture as the Nikon lens, but that shouldn't be such a detriment.
