    Hi Jim,

    These say compatible with Nikon - do you think it might not be OK with the D600?

    Is that not a yes and no question. yes it will work on the camera, and be fine in crop mode, but will it not struggle on full frame as it has been designed to work on a crop sensor camera.. And if the camera is full frame do you need a 10mm end?

    If a lens is designed for a crop camera won't it give, at the very least, bad vignetting......... or even maybe a circular image on FF?

    Normally, yes, but the Nikons are clever enough to switch to DX cropping automatically in such cases, I believe. A compromise, obviously, but at least usable.

    not exactly an answer to your question, but Sigma make a 12-24mm lens for full frame (which is wider than the 10-20mm when in Dx 'crop' mode) & in my experience works really well.

    Nikon FXs don't switch automatically, you can switch between 24x36 24x30 and 24x16.
    a Sigma 10-20 is certainly not good for an FX camera. The 14-24 Nikkor s a good choice, if that is to pricey try the 16-35 f4 Nikkor

    Yes, they do. From the D600 manual, page 89:


    Quote: Choose the aspect ratio and angle of view (image area). Thanks to the camera’s FX
    format (35.9 × 24 mm) image sensor, you can choose from angles of view as wide as
    those supported by 35 mm (135) format film cameras, while automatically cropping
    pictures to the DX angle of view when using DX format lenses. See page 335 for
    information on the number of pictures that can be stored at different image area
    settings.

    Auto DX Crop
    Choose whether to automatically select a DX crop when a DX
    lens is attached.

    I know my D3s automatically crops with Nikon Dx lenses, but I have never put my Sigma 10-20 on to see if the Sigma also 'auto-crops' (a friend has lend of it at the min so can't check it),
    The Sigma strangely will auto focus on one of my D200 bodies with just the rear AF button (I do not have AF set to work with the shutter release button, that's the way I have all my cameras set) but on the other D200 body it only works if the rear AF button as well as the shutter release are pressed together for some reason, so there is some compatability issue there.

    ok I stand corrected for the new models. Mine doesn't... I know so because I used my 12-24 many times in 30x24 mode down to about 14-15 mm. I have sold the lens now but is was a good interim solution. I have tried a friends 10mm to something Tamron and that was useless on an FX.

    The 10-20 is designed for the so called cropped sensor. To get a similar field of view on full frame, the nearest is the Nikkor 16-35 F4. I use it on the D700, and to be honest is far superior to the 10-20 (which I used with the D80 and D300). The best wide angle Nikon make (and probably the best wide angle zoom, irrespective of brand) is the 14-24. The 16-35 takes filters, but the 14-24 doesn't (or not easily).

    The 16-35 would give a similar field of view as 10.5-23 mm in DX terms
    The 14-24 gives 9-16

    ( note perspective remains constant irrespective of sensor size, so 16mm gives the same perspective on DX as FX)
