    There are quite a few differences.

    1. Aperture
    The Nikon 10-24mm is varying aperture (f3.5 - f4.5) while the 12-24 is constant aperture (f4).

    2. Built
    The 10-24mm is Made in China while the 12-24mm is made in Japan.

    Really depending on your needs.

    If you need the extra 2mm wider, then 10-24mm is the way to go.

    Quote from kenrockwell. (remember to read with a tablespoon of salt)
    Compared to the 12-24mm which it replaces, the 10-24mm is more cheaply built. The 12-24mm was built to semi-pro standards, but this new 10-24mm feels more dinky

    i got the 12-24mm when there was no 10-24. But if i am a first time buyer for a UWA, it would be the 10-24mm. that extra bit of wideness can be pretty dramatic, and the reviews regarding IQ has been positive.
