Sigma 12-24mm vs 8-16mm
Nov 12, 2012

Hello! Ive lurked here for quite some time and decided to ask a question I know most have seen many times. I apologize in advance.
Right now I am shooting with a D90 and D80. My D80 is IR converted.
Glass I own in order of focal length are...

Nikon 17-35 f/2.8 ED
Nikon 50mm f/1.4 D
Nikon 60mm f/2.8 D Micro

Nikon 70-300 f/4.5-5.6 G VR ED <~Least used lens.
I am looking for something wider than the 17-35. I like to shoot night cityscapes and landscape.
I am a little torn right now because on the d90 the 8-16mm is wider. I plan to upgrade to a FX camera within the next year and don't want to buy a lens that won't play nice with it since all my other lenses are FX already so I'm also considering the 12-24mm from sigma... Any advice would be appreciated.
