That is going to be a 27 mm equivalent on the D7000, will it be enough? My advice is to look for a DX zoom, there are plenty of choices, starting from 8, 10, or 12 mm, you should be able to get a used one cheap enough. I had a Sigma 10-20 and i liked it.

Hello Tomas,

18mm is not that wide on the D7000 to be honest, but I've become quite an expert getting the most out of that focal distance and also pretty knowledgeable in correcting geometric distortion.

I'm kind of afraid to go wider and then finding myself trying to correct incredibly distorted images. I just saw a Tokina 16-28mm zoom that according to DxO, is pretty sharp at 16mm f8 on the D7000, so maybe that's the kind of lens I really need.

Thanks!
