Which wide angle zoom lens should I get?
May 27, 2012

Been looking at reviews and seeing which lenses are available, but I'm not sure yet what I need. I want something wide that has some zoom capability. Something fast would be nice too. Looking for something affordable too.

Some lenses I've seen are:

Sigma EX 10-20
Tokina 12-24
Tokina 10-17
Sigma 8-16

I've seen a few of these used as well, which is a possibility.

Overall, will I notice much of a difference between say 3.5 and 4.5 at the low end, as far as speed? I would love to get lower than that but I don't see many that are.

Any advice would be great.
