Re: Tokina 11-16 mm lens

After thinking about this a few days, I might be better off buying a used Nikon 16-85 mm VR lens for about the same price.

I looked at some cave shots I took a year or two ago and I mainly used my zoom between 24mm to 50 mm for all the pictures.  They were shot at ISO 320, f/5.6, at 1/60th of a second with the Nikon SB 22s Flash.  However, no flash is allowed in Mammoth Cave, hence the VR may be the best answer. Plus the 16-85 is a much more versatile lens than the 11-16.

Formation in Cumberland Caverns , Tn

Besides the VR might eliminate the need to carry or use a monopod.
