Re: Recommend UWA lens for Amateur??

In terms of price, there are a few levels:

Sub $500--

Tamron 10-24
Sigma 10-20


Tokina 12-24 II

More than $700

Tokina 11-16 II (with motor, out soon)
Nikon 10-24

By all accounts, the Sigma is a best value while all the others have devotees fans taking great shots. I plan on getting the Sigma before a trip to Hawaii but that is subject to change. Having Nikon, Tamron, and Sigma lenses, I have no particular brand loyalty other than a desire to try a Tokina.
