Seriously? No. The 12-24 is NOT comparable to the corners of the 14-24 when the 12-24 used in DX mode. In fact, I can't think of anything that's comparable to the corners of the 14-24, except in some other mounts (Leica M, for example).

>What is the full FX coverage image quality like with the >12-24DX in the 18-24 range? Are the edges and corners soft?
I don't think "soft" really communicates what the edges and corners look like. In my brief experiment I found that while the image would indeed cover the full frame, the only area of the image I would consider usable was essentially the DX crop.
