Re: D7000 Lens suggestion needed

I have the Tokina 12-24mm f/4, and love it. Got it used on Craigslist for $340. It's sharp, built well, good colors and contrast. The ONLY thing I don't like is that it's prone to flares and ghosts, but a lens hood or a hand over the lens to shade it solves that most of the time. I was going to get the Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 for the extra 1 mm wide and faster speed, but I decided it was more important to have the extra zoom range that the 12-24 has.

An example, paired with my D80:
