Re: The Nikkor 10-24 f/3.5-4.5 doesn't count? n/t

it all depends on how wide you want. the nikon 10.5mm f/1.2 is a fisheye and has a diagonal field of view of 180 degrees and about 150 degrees horizontal field of view. Image Trends does not reduce the horizontal field of view.

rectilinear lenses are different and their field of view is nevr as large as that of a fisheye. the diagonal field of view of the Sigma at 8mm is 114.5 degrees which would make the horizontal field of view 91.5 degrees

As you can see your field of view with the Sigma will be much smaller

So how wide do you want?

and are you willing to deal with having to use image trends on some of your shots?

Can someone please express whether the Nikkor 10.5mm and Image Trends software or the Sigma 8-16mm is superior for my needs? Please assume that I'll have the Nikkor 16-85mm forever but will sell the 12-24mm to finance this transaction. The small difference in weight between the 10.5mm and 8-16mm is not so important as their comparative bulk.
