Question: what is the best lens at the lowest cost that will cover widest FL?
Jul 2, 2012

Hello again everyone,

I've been going through the Dyxum database in search for an all purpose lens for my camera that will help prevent my dust fears. I've found a few, but one of the ones I thought would be perfect, runs about $800 at its lowest.

What I would like is to balance the upper price range while still retaining as much possible quality in a lens. If I wanted to get a wide range 18mm or so and push it at least past or around 100mm, what lens would be good? As posted in my other thread, I ordered a 35-70 mini beercan without realizing the possible loss of the wide angle, so I may be back to the drawing board.

I really don't know what to do here. I never realized how stupid dust was, and how easy it is to steal into my camera, so whatever I can do to put preventative measures in place, the better.

Thanks in advance. Again. As usual.

Nick
