Nikon d600 wide angle lens advice
Jun 11, 2013

I have recently purchased a Nikon D600 body as an upgrade from a Canon 7D.

I am going to be buying a wide angle lens in the next few weeks or so and I would really like some advice.

my current lenses are the Nikon 105mm 2.8G VR Macro and Nikon 50mm 1.4G. on my Canon 7D is used 4 lenses Canon 17-40mm f4 L, Canon 100mm 2.8 L, Zeiss 50mm 1.4 and a Sigma 35mm 1.4 HSM.

I have a limited budget that I would be able to spend but I would like a nice lens. The lens I have considered is the 28mm 1.8G but I am not sure if that would be wide enough? my option would be to rent the lens for a few days and see what I think and how I like the feel. I would like a lens that is not too heavy to keep the wight of my kit down, although the 105 macro is very heavy (it is by far my most used lens).

What do people think of the 28mm 1.8G and have they used it as a main wide angle lens?
