Budget Wide Angle Lens for Nikon D810
1

Hello everyone, again. You were all so helpful with my last thread, that I am going to ask opinions on another topic.

I am looking for a budget wide angle lens to use with my D810. When I say budget, I mean I'll be shopping on the used market looking for something under $500.

I am looking for a lens in the sub-24mm range. Suggestions for primes and zooms welcome. I want a lens with good sharpness, ideally all the way out to the corners. This lens will be used pretty much exclusively for interior photos in tight spaces.

In most cases, I will probably be using a tripod with this lens. I am even open to MF suggestions. This really is just a lens for interior stills, capturing as much of a room as possible.

So far, the lens that I'm eyeing is the Nikon 20mm AF-S f1.8 ED. I'm not sure this is wide enough though. I like the price of the 17-35mm Nikon, but it seems to have fallen out of favor and have an issue with sharpness around the sides. The 18-35mm is crap, and the 16-35mm is slightly out of budget.

I am also considering the Nikon 18mm Ai-s f3.5. It seems like a great budget lens. I don't have a clue how it compares to a modern equivalent.

Thank you everyone in advance!
