I'm considering replacing my Tokina 19/35 cause it's not quite doing it on the D300 as it did with film. I am not terribly concerned about slight distortion because I won't be using it a whole lot where it would be that evident. ie buildings, etc. In fact my main use would be the great dof more than taking in the whole mountain range if that make sense. For that I can experiment with panos. I'd just like a feel from the cafe members on what they use. thanks glenn oops, not ignoring answers. till I find out why the mac isn't getting mails from the cafe subscriptions I have to check posts manually.
