Re: Recommend UWA lens for Amateur??

So, let me get this straight, if you choose a third party lens, it would only be Tamron?

I believe in buy it once and buy quality when possible. Yes $800 or more for the Nikon lenses are a lot, but they are really nice. After comparing the 10-24 when it first came out I opted for the 12-24 IMO better lens.

If I had to choose a third party go for Tamron.

Better to save and get what you really want it will be worth the wait.

Hi All

I having Nikon D5000.
Only shooting photos during my free time and during travels.
Recently I interested want go for a try for UWA lens.
I want to go for a budget lens since I not a professional photographer.

Tokina AT-X 11-16 f/2.8- not suitable for me since it does not have auto focus motor build in.
Nikon 12-24 f/4 and nikon 10-24 f/3.5-4.5 may too expensive for me to buy.

So it only left 2 lens for me to choose.
Tamron 10-24 f/3.5-4.5
Tokina 12-24 f/4 DxII

Any advise and input from you all which lens is better??
