I would like to have some advice from the pros about the lens that I need for my current situation. What i have are
Body: Nikon D90
Lens: Kit lens 18-105mm
I will be visiting New Zealand on the winter (July) for 6 months on backpacking. Basically what i would need is an All-in-one lens to minimize the weight traveling around. At first i decided to get Tamron 18-270mm PZD as there are many review that it is a good lens. When i visited a the shop to buy the lens, and after told him what body and lens I had (and also my budget $900 and below), he recommend me to stick to my own lens, and get an UWA Tokina 11-16mm F2.8 since i will be taking landscape more often than a zoom.
To be honest i havent been to NZ before and i only read 'in-sight guide' book which basically most of the pictures are landscape.
So i would like to get some advice should i get Tokina or Tamron or is there any better lens around this budget with my current situation?.
Thanks alot in advance.
NOTE: I am a newbie
