24mm isn't that wide on DX .... 36mm equivalent on 35mm or FX - that's what I use as my standard lens.

f2.8 isn't that fast either. If you're happy with f2.8 I would rather get a 17~50mm f2.8. Ideally I'd get the latest Sigma version with OS, but on a limited budget get the Tamron.

It isn't indeed a true wide angle on DX but I think it should fit my needs.

You might be right about the Tamron, if I buy that one I get the versatality of a zoom plus the f2.8..

choices, choices...

I have the 24/2.8 AIs and I think it's a great lens on my d200. Since you have the kit lens set it to 24 and spend a day looking through it. If you're happy with the field of view, then go for it.
