Re: Looking for a cheap wide angle for my D600

I suggest you take a good look on the wide zoom of the "original" trinity, the AF 20-35 f/2.8. The other members were AF 35-70 f/2.8 and AF 80-200 f/2.8.

It is a constant f/2.8 zoom when wide apertures are needed and pretty sharp when stopped down a bit. It has a solid full metal construction.

The weak part is the mechanical AF/MF switch collar. It may get stiff if gunk gets under it and applying too much force when turning the ring will break it. Make sure the ring moves smoothly without too much resistance, and you're golden.

There seems to be a few in ebay priced in the 200-300 range.
