Unfortunately there aren't a lot of ultra-wide options for DX
cameras. I think the options are the Sigma 10-20, the Tokina 12-24
(believe there are now two very similar versions of this), the Nikon
12-24 and the soon to be released Nikon 10-24.

There is also the Tamron 10-24:

I think you can get the Sigma used for about $400.

The Sigma was my Christmas present to myself. Seems pretty good to me,
but I've not personally compared it to others.

The Nikons retail for about $900. I
wish Nikon would make something like a 12mm DX prime in the mold of
the recent 35mm 1.8 AFS (aka cheap).

I wouldn't hold my breath, but you never know
