I sold my Nikon 12-24mm F4 some time ago so can't help you there. Mifsuds have a used Nikon 12-24mm F4 DX lens for £499. Greys of Westminster have one for £465. If this sounds a bit much then Mifsuds have a used Tokina 11-16mm F2.8 ATX PRO Asph IF DX for £349 which had a great write up when launched.  :tup:

The D700 is a full frame sensor but the Nikon 12-24mm F4 is a DX lens. Mine worked fine from 17mm to 24mm but below 17mm you will get shadow. You really need the Nikon 14-24mm F2.8 but at over £1,000 even for second-hand it might be too much.  :o
