In the order of optical quality:

1. Nikkor 12-24

2. Tokina 12-24

More CA and flair.

3. Sigma 10-20

Wide! But, soft edges and high CA stopped down.

Forget the new 14-24 for DX and your purpose, it is not wide enough.

Do your own research and decide based on your own priorities (for many buyers the price is a major factor):

Re: Lens tests

I heard the Nikon 12-24 is not ask good as the Tokina and the Sigma 10-20... that's based on some photolabs reviews. My vote easily goes to the Sigma 10-20 - 10mm is crazy wide. Easy to get shots like this...

ISO 200 at 11mm / f9 1/1250

14-24 JUST ISN'T WIDE ENOUGH on a DX sensor (at least for my practical use)

Re: Lens tests

Thanks guys....I have more research to do. I have been shooting my D100 with the Sigma 15x30 for the last 6 years....it has been my favorite WA lense....but then it is the only wide lense I have. I probably will not order until I have had a chance to try it on the D300.

Re: Which lens for D300 for wide angle

I had the Sigma 10-20mm and hated it. Image quality was poor, and at 10mm it was just too distorted for any practical use.

I sold it and got the Nikon 14mm f/2.8. Very wide but with little distortion. I couldn't be happier.

I second your opinion.

Tokina 12-24; Crisp and vivid.

Tokina 12-24mm is sharp.

Constant f4 can be helpful for indoor / average lighting.

If price is a worry then the Tokina is for you ... but if you can afford the the Nikkor it is a superior lense .

Agreed, Sigma 10-20HSM is sweet...

Not as good as the Canon 10-22USM but you can't stick that Canon in your Nikon can you? And Nikon does not make one in this range yet. So, i'm voting the Sigma 10-20HSM.
