Hi guys

I'm looking for a decent fast wide angle prime that doesn't weigh to much. It should be decent enough to use wide open on my D7000.

I was thinking about the 24 f2.8D. Does anyone have better ideas?

I would like to use it on vacation as wide angle walkaround lens, for shots during dinner, indoor, etc...

Thanks alot!!

If you want wide open, and fast, you will need to spend money, a lot more than 300 euros. Some body mentioned that the 24 2.8 is not a great lens. The new 24 1.4g is $2000. Craig mentioned that at the wide end the kit lens for the D7000 is only a half a stop slower. Not bad, and considering the low light capability of your D7000, save yourself some money, which I believe is the same conclusion you already came to. Good move.
