UWA's - My kit as it stands, what to look for
Jun 10, 2010

I have done extensive research on all the UWA's for DX out there. A lot of great offerings from every manufacturer.

With my current kit in your consideration, if you were to buy a UWA, which one would you choose. My current kit is Tamron 17-50 2.8, Sigma 70-200 2.8.

Choices:

Nikon 10-24
Nikon 12-24
Tamron 10-24
Tokina 11-16
Tokina 12-24

I personally think the Tokina would fit will with my kit. 11-16 2.8 then right onto the Tamron 17-50 2.8 and Sigma 70-200 2.8. All 2.8 lenses with great to exceptional image quality for reasonable prices, especially in Canada.

Maybe my thinking isn't quite right on this. I know I want to shoot structures and definitely some dramatic landscapes with extreme perspectives. I know 10mm will go real wide and 1mm can make a huge difference on the wide end. Which makes me think I should even consider the new Sigma 8-16, but from what I have seen 8mm on DX looks rather strange.
