Just added this lens to my kit and snapped off a few tonight. It sure gives a different perspective. My zoom kit is now complete.

YOu will love it. I'm amazed how sharp it is at f8 - not as sharp as my 14mm f/2.8, but darned close.

Just curious, mainly for personal reasons... why did you go with the Nikon over the Tokina?

I prefer buying Nikon glass, but I have seen a lot of reports on the Tokina talking about it being a great lens and for being half the price of the Nikon, I am considering the Tokina.

Thanks

Honestly...

The store I shop at doesn't have the Tokina to even compare the two. I also prefer to stick with Nikon glass.

Oooooooh - dangerous words mate ! I reckon you'll be needing the AFS 17-35 f/2.8 next :smile:
Why would I need that? To fill the gap between 24mm and 28mm? LOL




HEY....

There is not a LOL smilie anymore. :frown:

Good luck with the new lens Mike. I have never played with wide angle so this may give some new inspiration.

Simon,

You were right. Sounds like I may be picking up a 70-180 micro tommorow. :smile:
